This month, your preschoolers are blasting off into a new school year by reviewing our three basic truths. God made me. God loves me. Jesus wants to be my friend forever. Watch this video and then take a look below at each week and the specific story your child will hear. As you scroll, you'll also see a few downloadable resources that you can use to help continue the conversation at home with your kids.
Think about our three truths for just one minute. Think about how powerful they are. If your preschoolers have those three truths tucked into their hearts by the time they enter elementary school, they will have an amazing foundation on which to build their faith.
Your preschoolers will be hearing these three basic truths from us regularly throughout the month (and the months to come), but that’s not enough. They need to hear them from you. They need to hear them every day. Think about how many times you sing the ABCs with your preschoolers so they can learn their letters. That’s how many times they need to hear these truths.
Make saying these three truths part of your daily routine as your child gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night. God made them! God loves them! Jesus wants to be their friend forever! That’s something worth repeating.
We want to offer you ways to help your children remember this wonderful truth. Here's what we'll be talking about each week:
- August 7 - God makes people, His most loved creation. Genesis 1:26-27
- August 14 - God tells Abraham about His plan for him because He loves him. Genesis 12:1-7
- August 21 - Jesus tells a parable about a lost sheep to help people understand how much God loves them. Luke 15:3-7
- August 28 - Jesus loves Zacchaeus and spends time with him, even though Zacchaeus had done wrong things. Luke 19:1-8
