Happy birthday, Jesus! Yes, we know that Christmas is all about Jesus’ birthday, but do your preschoolers know? It will be a new idea to some of them. We have the best jobs in the world because we get to share with preschoolers for the first time that Christmas is all about Jesus’ birthday! Jesus has a birthday? Yep! He sure does! And, we are going to celebrate it BIG! We also want our preschoolers to know that the reason we celebrate Jesus’ birthday is because Jesus is God’s Son. God’s Son deserves a celebration as big as Christmas and a birthday bash as big as what we’re going to give Him this month! He is that special! So, gather up all the birthday celebration you can and prepare to party all month long! It’s not just balloons and party hats. We are sharing the true story that God gave us His only Son, Jesus, and HE is worth celebrating!

This month we are learning all about Compassion: Caring enough to do something about someone else’s needs. Compassion is what the Christmas story is all about. That’s why we are taking the entire Christmas season to talk about compassion and ask a different question each week to get kids and family thinking about how they can show compassion this Christmas. When God sent His one and only son he did something about our greatest need. That’s what Christmas is all about. We will take a look at how God’s compassion shows up throughout the Christmas Story.

This month’s theme of Happy Helpers Club helps us focus more on being thankful for the many people who help us. We’re asking, Who helps me, and how can I show them I am thankful for them? Simply put, we want our preschoolers to grow up with eyes that see the helpers and a heart that is thankful. Because no matter how grown up you are, you always have people helping you—and a “thank you” goes a long way. When we stop and think about it, we are surrounded by helpers who deserve a big thank you for all the ways they help us. They are making the world we live in—the world our preschoolers live in—a better place.

This month’s theme is Jam Session: Build a Better Beat. We are learning all about cooperation, working together to do more than you can do alone. Cooperation is a spiritual concept that originates with God. God created us to work together in community. Throughout the Bible, we see how God brought people together to accomplish something big for Him. When we work together, we reflect what Jesus envisioned for His followers. Our love for one another can point people to Him.

This month’s Camp Out theme helps us to teach our Preschooler’s that God’s got it! There are a lot of things in life that we just can’t do. That’s right. Sometimes we just don’t have it. We don’t have a handle on our circumstances. We don’t have what it takes to makes things better. We don’t have the answers, energy, wisdom, patience, solution, or way out of a situation. But, we do know the One who does. And, when you know the One who does, there’s no need to worry. God’s got it. That’s what we’re talking about with our preschoolers this month. No need to worry, be afraid, or feel alone. God’s got it!

This month’s theme of “More or Less?” is all about contentment. Everything we have comes from God. He is faithful to provide what we need. And even more than what we own, God can also provide what we need to face whatever happens in our life. God has proven time and again, that we can trust Him no matter what. We can complain or become jealous of what others have, or we can choose to respond with contentment, knowing that God has a plan for our lives.

This month’s Colorific theme is going to help us teach preschoolers that God keeps His promises. We’ve all experienced a broken promise or two and our preschoolers won’t have to wait long to experience one too. We want them to grow up knowing that God always keeps His promises. No matter how long we have to wait, God will
come through.

Colors are a huge part of a preschooler’s world, and as we explore the colors of the rainbow, we will teach preschoolers that God loves them, and that He always
keeps His promises. This is such an important part of the foundation we want to build for preschoolers as they grow to believe that God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever.

When we give kids a task, they're often very eager to help. But what if they learned to do it without being asked? What if we helped them see the needs around them and they take action? That's initiative: seeing what needs to be done and doing it.

When God saw our sin, He took initiative. He sent Jesus to make things right. When we see a need and choose to do something about it, people can see the reality of God’s love for them.

All month long, we’ll be taking a closer look at one of the best examples of someone who showed initiative even when he didn’t have to, Nehemiah!

We are so excited for our new theme this month called Anchors Away! We’re even more excited about our bottom line as we set sail to teach preschoolers that God’s way is perfect.

When you think about it, there are tons of different ways we can go in life. And, sometimes they can all sound like the right way at the same time. Our kids are going to grow up with more choices than ever. Every day, they will have to decide if they are going to go this way or that way. Is this the right way, or is that the right way?

That’s where we come in! We have the opportunity to begin teaching our children that God’s way is perfect. In fact, GOD’s way is the ONLY that is 100% the RIGHT way every, single time. Not my way. Not your way. God’s way!

  Memory Verse For August

Memory Verse For August

The Hunt: Wisdom is worth searching for! Wisdom is more than just being smart. It’s more than knowing the different between right and wrong. Wisdom means learning how to see life from God’s perspective. It’s finding out what you should do.... and doing it

Since God is the source of all wisdom, we want kids to understand that they can always go to Him to find it. We’ve got to go on the hunt because His wisdom is worth searching for. When Jesus was a boy, He grew in wisdom. God wants us to discover wisdom, too. When we make the wise choice, we reflect the character of Jesus to people around us. That’s why giving kids a strong foundation of wisdom is important. We want them to be equipped to face whatever choices they may need to make in the future.
