Quest :: Week of December 7

This month, we celebrate the beautiful gift of Jesus. We want preschoolers to say again and again, “God gave us Jesus.” We want it to live deep within their hearts so they grow to trust that God loves them so much that He gave them His one and only Son, Jesus, to be their friend forever. May we all pause under our own starry, starry night this year and remember the wonder of what we are celebrating — God gave us Jesus.

This week, we learned about the time Mary and Joseph traveled to Bethlehem where Jesus was born.

While you drive this week, encourage your child to look for star decorations. (e.g., house decorations, store fronts, city buildings, park decorations, etc.) Play a game where every time you see a star, everyone has to say, “God gave us Jesus!”

When you go into your child’s room this week, say, “Good morning! Who can tell me why this is the best time of the year?” and say, “It’s Christmas — the time when we celebrate Jesus’ birthday!”


Quest :: Week of November 23

Throughout the month, preschoolers will learn to be thankful for their family, friends, and food. They’ll learn that saying “thank you” is just as important as being thankful. Imagine preschoolers learning to tell God thank you — for EVERYTHING — all while having fun with their Group Leaders and friends. Imagine them growing up giving thanks to the Lord with their WHOLE heart.

In this week’s Bible story, we learned about the time Jesus healed 10 lepers, but only one went back to say thank you.

During bedtime this week, cuddle and pray with your child, “Dear God, thank You for everything. Thank You for our family and our friends and the food we eat and our warm, comfy beds. Please help us remember to tell You thank You for everything. We love You, God. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

This week, make some cookies with your family. As you bake, talk about your child’s friends. Next, either invite some of those friends over to play and eat the cookies, or deliver the cookies to them. It’s a great way to show your friends how thankful we are for them!
