Toddlers/Two Year Olds through Kindergarten
We want our preschoolers to grow up knowing that they can be brave, because God is with them. Yep! God can help them be brave! And they don’t even need a cape or a mask!
October 6: Week one, preschoolers will hear an all-time favorite story about Daniel in the lions’ den. Daniel was brave because he knew that God was with him. Daniel continued to pray because he knew it was the right thing to do, and when he ended up in the lion’s den, God sent an angel to save him.
October 13: Preschoolers will learn all about Gideon and how he bravely went into battle with just torches, pots, and trumpets. God told Gideon he would win the battle, and Gideon trusted God to know everything and be with him as he fought the much bigger army.
October 20: During week three, preschoolers will hear about a big sister who had a very big job to do. Miriam was tasked with watching out for her brother, Moses, when he was placed in a basket in the reeds. God was with her and helped her to be an excellent big sister.
October 27: Preschoolers will learn about Hezekiah, a mighty king who believed in a powerful God. Hezekiah knew his people needed God to save them from the coming battle. He led his people to prepare and then led them in prayer. God sent an angel to save the city!
Treehouse (1st-3rd Grade)
October 6: God opened the eyes of Elisha’s servant so he could see God’s protection. God is always with us. Jesus came to earth as the visible image of our invisible God. God’s protection from sin and death is given to everyone who trusts in Jesus. (2 Kings 6-7)
October 13: God called Jonah to go to his enemies and call them to turn away from their sin, but Jonah refused. Instead, he ran away. Later, God sent Jesus to His enemies to call us to repentance. Jesus willingly obeyed. Jesus died on the cross to rescue us from sin. (Jonah)
October 20: God used Hosea’s unfaithful wife to show the people of Israel that they were unfaithful to Him. God gave Hosea a deep love; Hosea was willing to buy back Gomer even after all she had done. God’s love is deep, and it never gives up. He goes after His people and paid a great price to get us back. (Hosea)
October 27: When the Israelites disobeyed God again and again, God punished them by removing them from His presence. We disobey God, but Jesus took the punishment for our sin upon Himself. Jesus brings us into God’s presence and keeps us there. (2 Kings 17)
