Hello, kidSTART Friends!
It’s summerrrrrr! I hear Olaf singing that, don’t you? Gotta love Olaf, but we have no snowmen in our summer theme this year. We do however have water—and lots of it!
It’s time for Camp Splish Splash!
Camp Splish Splash will run through both June and July and introduce our preschoolers to lots of interactive Bible stories that all teach us God’s way is perfect.
In June, preschoolers will hear about Noah, his ark, the multitude of animals and the rainbow. This one’s always a preschool favorite, Noah’s story is such a great one of how one man trusted God and did extraordinary things. And, the animals—they’re lots of fun too.
Then, preschoolers will learn about Jonah and that very BIG fish. Oh Jonah, why didn’t you listen the first time? Jonah truly shows us that God’s way is perfect, even when we don’t want to do it.
The month will end with Gideon and his dwindling army. Now, here is a man who really trusted that God’s way is perfect. He listened to God and allowed his scared soldiers to leave. Then, God told him to only keep the soldiers who drank from the river in a certain way. Gideon trusted and listened, and God led his army to victory. What an awesome story!
As we share these stories with preschoolers, we want not only to have fun, but to show them solid examples of people following God’s way and it being the perfect way. We want to teach them to trust God’s way in the easier things so that when life gets harder, they will know that God’s way is perfect, and that’s the way they should choose.
