Toddlers

Throughout the month of February, our toddlers will hear the story of Jesus and the children (Luke 18:15-16).  They will learn that Jesus loves us and wants to be our friend forever.  He wants to spend time with us because He loves us, no matter what

Two-Year Olds - Kindergarten

We can’t think of a better time to teach preschoolers about how much Jesus loves them than February—the month of love! And how much does Jesus love preschoolers? Well, the same as He loves you and me—A LOT! In fact, there is nothing wider or longer or higher or deeper than the love Jesus has for you and the preschoolers in your life.

This month, our goal is for preschoolers to know Jesus loves them, and that nothing will ever change that. To do that, we’ve planned some super fun, hands-on-activities and we’re ready to tell amazing Bible stories in ways that will engage young minds.

February 3: We will kick off the month with one of our favorite stories, Jesus and the Children. In this story, Jesus makes it very clear that children are important, and He wants them to come to Him. Why? Because Jesus loves them! Jesus loves us all—young or old. And, we’re never too old or young to hear about His amazing love for us.

February 10: Week two we will hear a story about Jesus’ friends, Mary and Martha. Jesus wanted them to stop and sit a bit so they could spend time together. Why? Because Jesus loved them. Jesus wants to spend time with us because He loves us too! We can spend time with Jesus by reading the Bible, by praying, and even by taking a walk out in nature.

February 17: Week three is an exciting story about a Centurion. He was an important solider who asked Jesus for help. Do you think Jesus helped him? Of course He did! Why? Because Jesus loved him. Because Jesus loves us, He wants to help us. We can always ask Jesus for help—no matter what kind of situation we find ourselves in. 

February 24: We’ll wrap up the month with a tender story about a time Jesus gave forgiveness, grace, and friendship to a woman who had made a lot of mistakes. Why? Because Jesus loved her, no matter what. Jesus loves us all the time. It doesn’t matter what we do. It doesn’t matter what we say. Jesus loves us—all of us.

Imagine if the preschoolers in your life grew up believing, with all their heart, that Jesus wants them to come to Him, He wants to spend time with them, He wants to help them, and He wants to be their friend forever—all because He loves them, no matter what.

February 3: In the New Testament, Jesus said that He is the Bread of life. (John 6:31-35) God provided manna from heaven for His people’s physical hunger, and later He provided His Son, Jesus, for our spiritual hunger. The Israelites needed bread to live for a little while, but whoever has Jesus will live forever! (Bread from Heaven, Exodus 15-17)

February 10:  Today, we have our Second Sunday (missions emphasis) program.

February 17: Moses needed others to help him lead God’s people and teach them God’s laws. God does not want believers to follow Jesus alone. He gives us brothers and sisters of faith who can help us love God, obey God, and tell others about Him. (Jethro Helped Moses, Exodus 18)

February 24: God is holy and separate from sin. His law shows us what He requires—perfect righteousness. Our sin separates us from God, but Jesus came to bring us back to God. Jesus is perfectly righteous. When we trust in Jesus, He takes away our sin and welcomes us into God’s family. (The Ten Commandments, Exodus 19-20)
