September 1/2 Parent Note for Sprouts

Dear Sprouts Parent, This month’s Colorific theme is going to help us teach our preschoolers that God keeps His promises. We want them to grow up knowing that God always keeps His promises! We will be exploring colors this month and your preschooler may tell you about new colorful ribbons for worship and new multicolored crayons. To make your own multicolored crayons click here. Your preschoolers can help take the paper off the crayons…it’s way harder that it looks! They can also help you break the crayons in preparation for the silicone mold. This week we begin with the story of Moses and God’s promise to always be with us. We want preschoolers to know that God is always with them, just lik

August 25/26 Parent Note for Sprouts

Dear Sprouts Parent, This is the last week for our theme, Anchors Away! Our bottom line is “God’s Way is Perfect.” And our Bible verse is 2 Samuel 22:31 which repeats our bottom line, “God’s Way is perfect.” Our children will face times when they just don’t understand God’s way. God’s way will make no sense to them, like when God told Gideon to shrink his army—before the battle! Who does that? Who sends soldiers home before the fight has even begun? Fortunately, Gideon trusted and obeyed God’s way, even though he didn’t understand it, and now we have an awesome story that shows we don’t need to understand God’s way for it to be perfect. Do you have a little one starting school this year? Her

Dear Kids’ Time parents, This weekend is the first weekend of our annual At the Movies series. During this series, we will use popular movies to explore the truth that God has created us all for a special purpose. This weekend, we will explore the movie Ferdinand! It’s an inspiring story of a gentle, kind, and loving bull in a world without acceptance. Throughout the movie, he has to learn to go against the crowd, and stand up for the values he believes in. We will learn that God did not make us to be like everyone else. Just like Ferdinand, we can stand up for the truth found in the bible. The memory verse this week is: Don’t live the way this world lives. Let your way of thinking be comple

Dear Remix, Revolution & SPIN Parents, This is the final week of our Emoji Series! The final Emoji we will focus on is the Cool Face Emoji.😎😎 We all like feeling cool, but sometimes feeling cool makes us think we are better than others. God wants us to stay humble and put others first. Our memory verse is: Be humble in front of the Lord. And He will lift you up. James 4:10 (NIrV). This weekend (08/11-12) and the following weekend (08/18-19) will be the final dates that kids will be able to earn wristbands and key tags. Challenge the kids to earn all eight wristbands if they have not already. Here are two discussion questions to ask your child to help this weekends’ lesson stick: What does

Dear Sprouts Parent, We have a new theme for August, Anchors Away! Our bottom line is “God’s Way is Perfect.” And our Bible verse is 2 Samuel 22:31 which repeats our bottom line, “God’s Way is perfect.” This week we learn that we can help others go God’s way. We will learn about young King Josiah. He was only a kid when he told an entire nation that God’s way is perfect. Do you have a little one starting school this year?

August 11/12 Parent Note for Sprouts

Dear Sprouts Parent, We have a new theme for August, Anchors Away! Our bottom line is “God’s Way is Perfect.” And our Bible verse is 2 Samuel 22:31 which repeats our bottom line, “God’s Way is perfect.” This week we will learn that we can do what God says even when it’s hard through the story of Naaman. Naaman thought God’s way was too hard. But he gave in and did things God’s way. We have fun activities planned to reinforce this lesson. There are great articles on the Parent Cue this month for Baby and Toddler parents. Click here to access the site. Do you ever hear “you’re going to miss this…just wait until they are teenagers…” This month’s baby parent cue, found here on the Kids’ Time web

August 4/5 Parent Note for Remix/Revolution

Hello Kids’ Time Parents, Most Emojis on our phones are yellow in color. There are yellow smiles and yellow frowns. There are yellow silly faces, and yellow sad faces. But the Emoji we are talking about this weekend represents a very strong emotion. This strong emotion is anger. Some people think that anger is a bad emotion. They think that God wants us to always be cool and never, ever lose our temper. That is simply not true. God created anger just as he did every other emotion, but as we’ve learned from previous weeks, there is a right time and a wrong time to get angry. We will learn about when Jesus got angry as He cleansed the temple found in John 2:13-1. The memory verse this week i

August 4/5 Parent Note for Sprouts

Dear Sprouts Parent, We have a new theme for August, Anchors Away! Our bottom line is “God’s Way is Perfect.” And our Bible verse is 2 Samuel 22:31 which repeats our bottom line, “God’s Way is perfect.” As parents we have plans for our preschoolers that they sometimes don’t want to follow. God is the same way with us. He has a perfect plan for us, but we have the choice to obey. This week we will learn about Jonah. God asked Jonah to go to Ninevah, God’s way and Jonah chose to go in the opposite direction. Jonah ended up in the belly of a fish and then followed God’s way…I’m thankful I haven’t ended up in the belly of a fish when I choose my own way! Our Parent Cues are new this month and I
