The Happy Helpers Club is back! And, it’s better than ever. This is one of our FAVORITE themes to do with preschoolers. At a young age, children start saying, “I help,” and it’s our responsibility to teach them how to help. God wants them to help others, to think of others before themselves, so let’s make sure they know how to do it!
This month we’ll hear how Ruth helped Naomi by staying with her when she could have returned to her hometown. Then, Boaz helped them both by making sure they had enough to eat and were cared for (May Weeks 2 and 3). We can help others by being with them in a time of crisis and making sure they have what they need. Preschoolers will learn about Nehemiah and how he led an entire city to rebuild their wall (May Weeks 4 and 5). We can help others by leading them to accomplish a task. Then, they’ll experience the story of the woman who built a room for Elisha so that he had somewhere to rest when he was in town (June Weeks 1 and 2). We can help others by providing them hospitality. Finally, preschoolers will hear how Aaron and his friends helped Moses by physically holding up his arms to help the army win an important battle (June Weeks 3 and 4). We can help others by physically helping them do something as well as standing by them during a hard time.
The Monthly Memory verse is “Be Kind and Loving to Each Other” Ephesians 4:32, NCV
The Bottom Line is I Can Help Others.
