God Loves Me
Our key question we are answering this month is “Who is always with you?”. God is always with you! We will use the story of baby Moses this week to illustrate the truth, God Loves Me.
In Exodus 1:21-2:10, we see that as a baby, Moses was going to be killed. God had a plan in that though, and made a way for his life to be spared. Even as a baby, God was with Moses and he went on the lead the greatest walk to freedom in History.
Create a Rhythm this week by memorizing this verse with your preschooler and remind them regularly that God loves them and is always with them!
‘God (point both hands straight up) is with you (point out to a friend) wherever
(spin in a circle) you go’ (march in place), Joshua 1:9 (open your hands as if opening a book).

Contentment – choosing to be happy with what you’ve got
Every parent should appreciate this lesson. We all know the story of the Forbidden Fruit. Adam and Eve wanted what they weren’t supposed to have and it ended very badly. Continuing to drive home our Basic Truth, “I need to make the wise choice”, we will explore the virtue Contentment this month.
Fight for the Heart and memorize this verse with your students. Think about the example you are setting as we live life in this faced paced, microwave mentality culture. Are you keeping up with the Jones’s or are you following God?
“I have learned to be content no matter what happens to me.
I know what it’s like not to have what I need.
I also know what it’s like to have more than I need.
I have learned the secret of being content no matter what happens.” Philippians 4:11b-12a, NIrV
Club 45 (4-5th grade)
Hot, Bold, Confident
There are numerous stories in the Bible about Kings and Countries being drawn to men and women of God because of their boldness and confidence in the Lord. The example we will look at this weekend with your student is the story of Nehemiah, found in Nehemiah 1-7.
Nehemiah stood up for Jerusalem and did what he knew God was asking him to do. Because of his boldness, many peoples lives were impacted and others joined in the effort to help rebuild Jerusalem’s walls.
What can your student learn from this? We hope that you will Imagine the End with them by challenging them to be bold. Stick up for what is right and see people join THEM!
