God created us to be in a relationship with Him and in
relationships with people here on earth. He wants us to
have friends, and He wants us to be a good friend. In
fact, He wants it so much, God sent His one and only Son,
Jesus, to show us how to be a good friend and make a
way for us to be friends with Him forever.
Friendships are a big part of preschoolers’ lives. Through
these first relationships, they are learning how to be
a friend, have fun with friends, get along with friends,
problem solve with friends, resolve conflict with friends,
and above all, love friends.
This month, we hope preschoolers will learn that Jesus
is their friend – the best friend they will ever have. If our
preschoolers finish this month knowing that Jesus wants
to be their friend forever, that is a huge win! That will
make it a very Happy Easter!
The Bible story for weeones this week was JOHN 13:3-17:
Jesus demonstrates how good of a friend He is by washing His friends’ feet.
SAY THIS TO REMIND YOUR CHILD OF SUNDAY’S LESSON:

BASIC TRUTH: JESUS WANTS TO BE MY FRIEND FOREVER.
