Did you have a FANTASTIC weekend launching “Away We Go” in your preschool ministry? This is such a pivotal time in the ministry year, we want to make sure you get your best foot forward and launch into a season of learning with your little ones and partnership with your parents! So, this August, we have prepared so many new resources to help you make a great start! Even if you didn’t have every piece in place as you launched, you can still add these to help you move through the month of August, and the entire fall, flying high!
Did you offer the “Extended Toddlers” lesson time this weekend? We would love to hear how that works with your little ones! We all know that preschoolers develop at different rates and having something available for those youngest ones who are eager to engage gives you a jumpstart on helping them form those first impressions of their Heavenly Father.
How are your environments incorporating the new resources? Did having the “Lead Small” piece posted for your volunteers make it easier to understand the importance of their role? Did the “Home” piece make it easier for them to encourage your parents as they were picking up their children? If you missed these new pieces for the first week, find them on the Monthly Visuals panel and print them for next week! Casting vision and encouragement couldn’t be any easier!
We have been SO excited to offer the “Rug” version of the “Make It True” Bible story time! Having one, simplified script that a leader can use to guide a smaller group of kids through the worship time and Bible story in a smaller space has been a request we have had for a long time. If you use the “Rug” script, we would love to see what your “Rug Time” looks like! If you missed the introduction of the Rug script, check out the Large Group panel! It’s the very same story with a simplified presentation!
The best part of creating these new resources that launched with “Away We Go” is getting to see how you, our awesome First Look Friends, actually use these in your environment! So, we want to see or hear, or see AND hear what you are doing! And if you will take the time to share your story or picture with us, we will put your name in a drawing for 2 packs of the Away We Go postcards you could use to follow up with kids and volunteers! AND, as a bonus, we will also send you a pack of the Super Kids II tattoos!
In order to enter the drawing to win, you must comment below and include the name of your church and location. (For example: Juniper First – Juniper, FL) You can share a story here. Or, email us a picture; but be sure to comment that you are sending the picture, so we will get your name in the hat!
Rules and Fine Print:
1. You can share as many stories or pictures as you would like, but they all count as one entry per church. (Also note, we will share these pictures on the Facebook page and this blog, so please secure any parental release that is needed prior to sharing with us!) Pictures can be emailed to: email@example.com
2. Contest runs through midnight, 11:59PM EST, Wednesday, August 12th.
