January Curriculum Update – The Market

 

 

Preschoolers know they have needs and they are not afraid to let you know. That’s a good thing and something we want to use to help preschoolers see another need they have—a need we all have—and that is Jesus.

 

 

Yes, I need Jesus is the focus this month. And, we know from experience that the older preschoolers get, the more they will need Jesus. Life can be tough. Having a friend like Jesus who knows us, loves us, and has the power to help us can truly change our lives.

After all, that’s what friends do. They help one another when they need it. And there is no better friend than Jesus.

What’s Coming Next?

WEEK 1 – 1/6 & 1/9

We will begin the month with a preschool
favorite—when the four friends take the lame man to see
Jesus. They knew only Jesus could heal their friend. This
is a great story to act out over and over again.  When we have
friends with needs that we can’t meet, we can take them
to Jesus, just like the four friends took their friend to
Jesus.

WEEK 2 – 1/13 & 1/16

Week two we will hear the story of a deaf man
who asked Jesus for help. He knew he needed Jesus!
We need Jesus and we can ask Him for help too.
Sometimes we need Jesus to do what we can’t because Jesus can do anything!

 


The Market Food Drive for IOCP

This month, your preschooler is learning about how everyone needs Jesus. One of the ways we are talking about our needs is through The Market theme, because we can all relate to needing food.  Many children in our community struggle to get the food they need and their families depend on local food shelves, like IOCP.

IOCP is in need of donations after the holidays, and we want to help restock their shelves so parents can provide their children with the food they need. Last year alone, IOCP’s food shelf served 4,485 individuals (40% were children).

Your preschooler can help by bringing in one or more any canned or boxed food item or any of the following items that are most needed at IOCP:

  • Cooking oil
  • Canned fruits/veggies
  • Healthy snacks
  • Baby wipes/food/formula/wipes
  • Paper towels or toilet paper
  • Canned meat/fish
  • Diapers – size 5, 6, and pullups

You can drop off your donations with Ms. Hannah on any Sunday or Wednesday. All of the items will be delivered to IOCP at the end of the month. Thank you for your help!


SAVE THE DATE: Early Childhood Sunday – 1/20

Join us at 9am Worship on Sunday 1/20 to celebrate our wonderful ministry!

EC Ministry children ages 2-PreK should be checked in and dropped off in classrooms like a regular Sunday.  Teachers will then bring their classes up to Worship.  The EC Ministry Choir will sing a song and we will enjoy a little children’s moment to share what we have been learning this year.  Then the group will head back down to their classrooms with their teachers to continue the morning with some play time.

After Worship, we will be taking over the East Entrance!  Come pick up your child and join us for some yummy snacks and hands on activities you can participate in with your child.
