It’s amazing to know that there is ONE person that will never leave you, hurt you, lead you in the wrong direction, or cause you to do anything you shouldn’t do. Jesus is your forever friend, and He will always be there for you! He loves you, and there is nothing you can do to make Him love you less! That is a pretty big deal, isn’t it? It’s what we’re teaching our preschoolers this month. Jesus wants to be their friend forever.
This month is all about “Go and Tell,” and we even have a fun cheer to help your preschoolers remember that we are to go and tell others that Jesus wants to be their friend forever. On the first Sunday of April, we will celebrate Easter with our preschoolers. Then, your little ones will hear the great commission—how Jesus asked His disciples to “go and tell” everyone everywhere about Him. They will learn about Peter, who was put in jail because he was so good at “going and telling,” and the angel God sent to free him. Finally, they will hear about Paul and Silas who were also amazing at the “go and tell” mission. They’ll get to reenact the earthquake that God sent to free them from jail. Through each of these stories we pray that our children will learn that God wants us to “go and tell” also, and that He is with us as we do.
