February 2017 Editor’s Notes

Hello, First Look Friends!

The month of candy hearts and oversized stuffed bears has arrived. It’s the month we set aside each year to celebrate our love for those we hold near and dear. And what says “I love you” better than a box of chocolates or cards that play music when you open them?

As thoughtful as these things are, Jesus has a few different ways of showing us how much He loves us. Jesus shows His love for us by simply wanting to spend time with us. Jesus wants us to come to Him – anytime, anywhere – just come. Jesus shows He loves us by helping us. And, Jesus loves us no matter what.

Jesus’ love is SO BIG! That’s what we want our preschoolers to walk away knowing this year. Jesus loves them with a love that is bigger than they can imagine!

Madi and Harper are in our clubhouse this month on the Wonder! DVD. It is available at The Orange Store, and you can even sign up for a monthly subscription. Use this DVD to supplement a live Storyteller and/or Host for the Make It True section of the curriculum.

February’s Preview Video will be on the First Look website. You can download the video and script from the matrix—it is located in the Monthly Visuals tab. If you’d like to embed the video into your church blog, we have it available on Vimeo. Feel free to share the vision with everyone!

Our team will be praying for you to have moments filled with wonder as you give preschoolers a “first look” at the God who loves them, made them, and wants to be their friend forever.
