This month, we will continue with our Power Up theme as we learn how Jesus gives us the power to love others— and not just the ones who are easy to love. No, this kind of power is what helps us love everyone! This powerful kind of love looks a lot like goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Our hope is that in the midst of playing games and laughing, connecting with friends and spending time with small group leaders, talking with parents at home and driving down the road, our preschoolers will learn how much Jesus wants to help them be all that God made them to be. Everything that Jesus is—love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control—is available to us. All we have to do is plug into the power source and POWER UP!
WEEK ONE BIBLE STORY:
God has given us so many good things, including His Son, Jesus, and when we follow Jesus He gives us the power to give good things too.
SAY THIS TO REMIND YOUR CHILD OF SUNDAY’S STORY:
Who gives you the power to do everything?
Jesus gives me the power to do everything.
DO THIS TO REMIND YOUR CHILD OF SUNDAY’S STORY:
When you go into your child’s room this month, say, “Good morning! Where’s my [child’s name]? There he/she is! It’s time to eat breakfast so we can power up our bodies for the day! But first, who gives us the power to do everything? Jesus gives us the power to do everything!”
“I can do everything by the power of Christ.”
Philippians 4:13, NIrV
BASIC TRUTH: JESUS WANTS TO BE MY FRIEND FOREVER.
