HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all of our wonderful families here at Mountainview! Without you we couldn’t do what we do!
And what are we doing this month? I’m so glad you asked! This month we’re helping preschoolers learn to say thank you for the people who help them. And there are a lot of people who help preschoolers!
First, there’s family. I mean family is like at the top of the list! Our preschool friends will hear how Aaron helped his brother Moses this month. Then, there are community helpers all around us who help us just as Nehemiah’s community helped him rebuild the wall.
There are all kinds of other people helping preschoolers by giving them what they need—people like our volunteers! They give your kiddos hugs, snacks, and best of all, God’s true stories! We need all kinds of people to help us! Elisha got some great help from a woman who prepared an entire room for him.
Oh, and last but not least—friends. Preschoolers need friends. You and I need friends. We all need friends! Friends help us have fun, do what’s right and they come in handy when we forget our snack. I’m pretty sure Elijah was thankful for his new friend, the widow, when she shared her food!
Our preschoolers need help, tons and tons of help. And, we want them to grow up with eyes that see the people who help them, and a heart that says thanks. That’s the goal this month.
Our team will be praying for you to have moments filled with wonder as you give preschoolers a "first look" at the God who loves them, made them, and wants to be their friend forever.
