“Love God. Love People.” It’s the greatest commandment in a nutshell. It’s what my children have been taught since they were young. Your actions should show others that you love God and love people. As they have gotten older, they have come to realize that by loving others and serving them, they ARE loving God. And, they are sharing His love with those around them. It’s been a fantastic development to watch, and it’s one we pray will happen in every preschooler we touch with this month’s curriculum.
We ended April with “DARING FAITH” and we begin May with learning about the early church. Our preschoolers will learn that the early church wasn’t about a building, but about a group of people meeting together to worship and share life with one another. They will learn that they can be just like those people in the early church. They can share and help each other and worship God together.
The “My Neighborhood,” theme is great for this unit because we are to “love our neighbor” and preschoolers are already learning about neighborhoods both at school and through their picture books at home. Throughout the unit, we will emphasize that we are to love each and every neighbor in our neighborhood as we talk about who those people might be.
Our team will be praying for you to have moments filled with wonder as you give preschoolers a “first look” at the God who loves them, made them, and wants to be their friend forever.
