Little Kids: Teaching & Resources (2-5 years old)
We are using a lemonade stand theme this month to welcome in the warmer days and introduce preschoolers to the amazing truth that God loves them. We want preschoolers to know that God has put a lot of planning and creating and love into each one of them. And, just like you can’t separate the water from the sugar from the lemon juice once you mix them, NOTHING can separate us from God’s love.
So, think a lot of love and a little lemon—mix it all together, and we will get an entire month of God loves me!
GOD LOVES ME
Story Focus: God loves me no matter what. Week three, we will hear a story told by Jesus. In this story, a son leaves his father to go and do things his own way. The son makes a lot of wrong choices, but the father never stops loving him. In fact, when the son returns, instead of punishing his son, the father throws a huge party! That’s how much the father loved the son. Jesus wants us to know that God loves us even more than the father loved the son. God loves us no matter what!
