Each weekend your child from 6-weeks-old through 5th grade can be part of an exciting and active environment filled with songs, games, memory verses, and Bible stories that teach Godly lessons at an age-appropriate level. While you are experiencing worship, your children are experiencing it in a way that is perfect for them!

Give thanks with us for this special Sunday Friendsgiving!
What are we learning?
Parade of Thanks
Thanking God for Who He is, what He has done, and what He has given us is something people have been doing for a very, very, VERY long time. You could say that the people in the Bible make up this super long PARADE OF THANKS . . .and it’s up to us to keep it going!
We want our preschoolers to continue this Parade of Thanks by teaching them they can thank God for everything—literally everything! Their light-up shoes, their new toy, their snack, their favorite rock . . . EVERYTHING! So let’s make sure the Parade of Thanks that God’s people began so long ago continues with us and our preschoolers as we choose to thank God for everything!
Christmas is such a special time of year! Preschoolers will experience a lot of excitement and wonder. We all do!
But as they get older—and as we take time to stop and remember—we hope that the good news that God gave
us Jesus will become the most wonderful part of Christmas. So get ready because we are hopping aboard the
CHRISTMAS TRAIN, and it’s carrying the true story of Christmas!
Gratitude sometimes feels like a lost art. Yet gratitude is an idea close to God’s heart. Think about all of the Bible stories where people gave thanks to God. The Israelites celebrated God with feasts and festivals.
The writers of the Psalms wrote songs of praise to thank God for being faithful. Throughout this month, we hope kids will learn to be grateful for everything God has done: for the world God made, for the promises God has kept, and for the new life God offers the world through Jesus. When we remember all of these things, we can always be thankful.
With the busyness of the Christmas season, it’s easy to lose sight of why we celebrate in the first place. We forget that at the time of the first Christmas, God’s people were anticipating a Rescuer who would come and save the world.
That’s what makes a countdown like an advent calendar so powerful. It allows us daily moments to stop and reflect on God, who loved us so much and sent Jesus to be our Savior. This December, we’re “decking the halls” and taking the whole the month to focus on nothing but Christmas by celebrating Jesus, God’s greatest gift!
Now is the time for our preschoolers to begin learning that God can help them be brave because the need to be brave—
God-brave—will only grow throughout their lives.
What is God-brave? God-brave is . . . . . . the kind of brave that does the right thing even when others don’t, . . . the kind of brave that stands up to seemingly impossible circumstances, . . . the kind of brave that trusts God during the darkest of times, . . . the kind of brave that looks to God to help us be strong and courageous, . . . the kind of brave that makes us SUPER KIDS—not because of what WE can do but because of what GOD can do.
God View: The connection between cooperation and God's character, as shown through God's big story.
God is always good. Since the very beginning, God has been faithful and true. If God makes a promise, God keeps that promise. We are created in God’s image . . . and when we live with integrity, we reflect God’s integrity.
When Jesus lived on earth, He lived a perfect life and showed integrity in ways we can’t because of our sin. Jesus makes it possible for us to live as new creations. Through the Holy Spirit, we are being transformed into people of integrity. Who we are in private should match who we are in public. When we trust in God, we can make the wise choice and be truthful in whatever we say and do
