Happy Fall, Parents!
We're back and ready for a brand new season here at Mountainview Kids! Be sure to check your emails weekly, as we have a new weekly PARENT CUE email coming your way!
Now when was the last time you really looked at everything God made? Taking a moment to walk outside or search for the wonders of the world online will totally change the way you share this month’s Bible stories with preschoolers.
We need that WONDER dial turned way up! ALL the way up! And the best way to do that is to experience some of that wonder!
When we take the time to look at this amazing world God made, we are filled with awe and wonder. It’s that feeling of wonder we want our preschoolers to have as they learn about God’s creation. We are going to do a lot of counting together this month—one, two, three, four, five, six, seven—pausing to learn what God made on each day of creation. Through our fun and exciting activities and stories we want our preschoolers to learn God made everything, and IT IS GOOD!
August 31/September 1st
On September 1st, we will introduce our preschoolers to the idea of creation and that God made everything. We will then review days one and two of creation.
Story Focus: On days one and two, God made the light and dark and sky and water. God made the light and the dark so we could have day and night. Then, He created the beautiful sky and the waters below.
We continue with creation in week two and introduce what God made on day three of creation.
Story Focus: On day three, God made the land, plants, and sea. God created land to separate the waters. On the land, He created beautiful plants—some we even eat!
During week three, preschoolers will hear about day four of creation.
Story Focus: On day four, God made the sun, moon, and stars. God created the sun to keep us warm during the day and the moon that we can see at night. He created every twinkling star in the sky.
Week four will be our preschoolers’ favorite as they learn that God made the birds, fish, and animals on days five and six of creation.
Story Focus: On days five and six, God made the birds, fish, and animals. God didn’t just create just one kind of fish or bird. He created so many different kinds of fish and birds. And, He made so many amazing animals too. But, that’s not all God made on day six. He made people too.
For the last week of the month, we’ll talk more about God’s most special creation, people!
Story Focus: On day six, God made the most special thing: people. Then He rested. God created each and every one of us, and it was VERY good. Then, on day seven of creation, God rested.
As a reminder, our children's programming is making a shift on Saturday nights beginning the weekend of September 7/8. We will no longer offer elementary programming, and our preschool program will absorb our first graders. We encourage you to take your older children to church with you on those evenings!
