February Curriculum Update – Love Bugs

We can’t think of a better time to teach preschoolers about how much Jesus loves them than February—the month of love! And how much does Jesus love preschoolers? Well, the same as He loves you and me—A LOT! In fact, there is nothing wider or longer or higher or deeper than the love Jesus has for you and the preschoolers in your life.
This month, our goal is for preschoolers to know Jesus loves them, and that nothing will ever change that.

 

To do that, we’ve planned some super fun, hands-on-activities and are ready to tell amazing Bible stories in ways that will engage young minds.

 

We also have some colorful, little friends joining us… LOVE BUGS!

 

WEEK 3 – 2/17 & 2/20

Week three is an exciting story about a Centurion. He was an important solider that asked Jesus for help. Do you think Jesus helped him? Of course He did! Why? Because Jesus loved him.
Because Jesus loves us, He wants to help us. We can always ask Jesus for help—no matter what kind of situation we find
ourselves in.

 

WEEK 4 – 2/24 & 2/27

We’ll wrap up the month with a tender story about a time Jesus gave forgiveness, grace, and friendship to a woman who had made a lot of mistakes. Why? Because Jesus loved her, no matter what. Jesus loves us all the time. It doesn’t matter what we do. It doesn’t matter what we say. Jesus loves us—all of us.

 

Imagine if all of the preschoolers in your life grew up believing, with all their heart, that Jesus wants them to come to Him, He wants to spend time with them, He wants to help them, and He wants to be their friend forever—all because He loves them, no matter what.


PARENT EDUCATION NIGHT RESCHEDULED: Handheld Screens and Early Learners Monday 3/4

By the time a child turns 3 years old their brain is 80% of its adult size.  In short 3 years little brains are growing at a rapid rate, faster than any other time during a child’s life.

Over the past decade technology has grown at a rapid rate as well. Not long ago screens were limited to TVs and desktop computers in the home or office, but now we have a large variety of technology options, many at our fingertips through handheld devices. Research is starting to emerge about the impact this readily available technology has on our littlest learners.

Early Childhood Ministry and Wayzata Community Church Nursery School, along with Wayzata Early Learning School invite you to join us on Monday, March 4th
from 7-8:30 pm in the Wayzata Community Church Chapel for a discussion on how technology is impacting our youngest learners and how parents and caregivers can play an
important role in a child’s development.


Mission in Motion and Special EC Programming – Ash Wednesday 3/6

 

Join us on Ash Wednesday for some hands-on mission projects appropriate for ages 3 through adult!  Stations will be running in the Gym from 4-6pm.
