Parents are the primary spiritual influence in the life of their child so we want to come alongside you as you lead your kid to Jesus. This is a space for you to see the Scripture reference and Bible story from the weekend, along with provided activities that foster conversations about Jesus at home.
"You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind."
(Matthew 22:37, NLT)
In March, preschoolers will continue learning from the Bible through new stories, engaging worship, and activities that help reinforce the lesson. We want to serve your kids well by ensuring that they experience Jesus on their level! This month, preschoolers will focus how God saved His people. They will begin by learning the story of how God provided for His people while they wandered in the desert. Then they will hear about the 10 commandments. Next, preschoolers will learn the that the only way to be saved from our sin in through Jesus! We can’t wait to see your family at church this month!
March 3: eXodus 15-17
Bread from heaven
Ask your child: What did God give the Israelites? (mana & quail)
Draw together: With markers or crayons, encourage your preschooler to draw a picture of the bread that the people found all over the ground. Have them draw birds in the air that God sent so His people would have meat to eat. Remind them how God provided for His people. He knew exactly what they needed and then He met those needs. Ask them whether the people were happy or sad when they got food to eat. Tell them, God knows our biggest needs and provides for them too! Our biggest need is to be saved from our sins, so we can be close to God. Celebrate that God has provided Jesus for us!
March 10: eXodus 19-20
The 10 Commandments
Ask your child: Why did God give us the 10 commandments? (So we would know we need Jesus!)
Read together: In your Bible, or using your kids’ Bible, read the story of Joseph together. We recommend the Jesus Storybook Bible because it always points to Jesus. If you have that Bible, this story is found on pages 100-107. Remind your child how much God loves him/her and how God gives us rules to protect us and help us live lives that please God.
March 17: Exodus 32
The Golden Calf
Ask your child: What place is God in your heart? (#1)
Play together: In the Bible story, people chose to honor and worship a golden calf instead of the One True God. Collect several different objects from around the house. Play a game where your child gets to put them in order of their least favorite to their favorite. Encourage them to say “This, (object) is my favorite, but God is #1!” Continue to play with various objects and always proclaim that God is #1!
March 24: exodus 5-12
Ask your child: Why did God’s people build a tabernacle? (So God could be with them!)
Pray together: Talk with your child about how God wants to be with us. Our sin is something that keeps us far from God. We need Jesus to pay for our sins so we can be close to God. Sit somewhere cozy and cuddle up with your preschooler. Encourage them that we can talk to God anywhere and anytime. Lead them in a prayer of thankfulness for who Jesus is and what he has done for us. Ask your child to tell God why they are thankful for Jesus.
March 31: Leviticus 1-27
The Way to Forgiveness
Ask your child: Who took our punishment for sin?
Pray together: Talk with your child about how sin is something that keeps us far from God. There needs to be a payment for our sins so that we can be close to God. Jesus chose to pay for our sins so we don’t have to. Because of Jesus, we can be close to God! Sit somewhere cozy and cuddle up with your preschooler. Encourage them that we can talk to God anywhere and anytime. Lead them in a prayer of thankfulness for who Jesus is and what he has done for us. Ask your child to tell God why they are thankful for Jesus.
