Our goal for preschool curriculum is to build a foundation of biblical knowledge so preschoolers will know the major stories of the Bible and how they fit together into God’s big story. Our curriculum is organized into 12 units and we teach the major stories of the Bible in mostly chronological order. Each week there is a Teaching Truth which is the most important thing we want kids to hear and learn about God and His Story that week.

More ways to have a great week of worship...
Use these activities to keep talking about and applying what you learned this weekend throughout the week.
1. Rainbow Mobile
SUPPLIES: Paper plate, tape, string or yarn, construction paper, markers or crayons
Take a paper plate and cut it in half. Have your child decorate the paper plate like the sky with clouds, sun, or birds. Then, tape or staple a long piece of string or yarn to the plate coming down from the center. Next, help your child cut wide strips of paper in each of the colors of the rainbow. On each strip, help your child write one thing they know is true about God. (Examples: God loves us. God is always with us. God is good.) Tape or staple these strips to the yarn in the order of the color of the rainbow.
2. Noah's Ark
SUPPLIES: Paper bag, markers or crayons, animal crackers
Grab a brown paper lunch bag, turn it on its side, and have your child decorate it like an ark. On a separate sheet of paper have your child color and cut out a rainbow. Using some animal crackers, have him act out the story of Noah’s ark. Open the paper bag, so he can march the animals inside the ark. Then pretend to have a rainstorm. Lastly, march all the animals out and tape the rainbow above the ark. Remind your child that God always keeps His promises. God made a promise to never again flood the earth, and the rainbow is our reminder of God’s promise.
