New to the Kit or looking for helpful hints on how to use it? Check out the Kids Kit Tips and Tricks - Preschool Edition where we share detailed instructions about the resources below.

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. The Big Picture


Get out a puzzle that is simple enough for your child to put together. As you put the puzzle together, point out to your child how each piece has a purpose. Explain that though a puzzle piece does not seem very important all by itself, once the whole puzzle is put together, each piece has an important purpose to make the big picture complete. Remind your child that just as God had a purpose for Samuel’s life, He has a purpose for each of our lives as well. We do not always know or understand what God’s purpose is. However, we can trust that He sees the big picture and He has a purpose for us in His plan, just like each piece of the puzzle.

2. Follow the Leader


It’s Follow the Leader time! You can play this game using words or actions. Have your child either do what your say, or follow your exact actions. After playing the game, talk about how Samuel obeyed everything God told him, just like they obeyed you during the game. Use the questions below to help remind your child that God knows what is best and has a purpose for our lives.

  1. Do you think it was hard for Samuel to obey what God told him to do? Did God know what was best for Samuel?
  2. Even if we don’t want to or if it is hard, does God still want us to obey Him? Does God know what is best for us?
  3. Does God always love us? Does God have a purpose for our lives?

3. Prayer


As you start your day, spend some time in prayer with your family each morning this week. Thank God for whatever may be on your schedule for that day. Ask God to use each of you for His purpose, no matter what that might look like. Ask God to help you listen and obey even when it is hard or if you do not feel like doing what you know He says is best. Thank Him for loving you, seeing you, and letting you be a part of His big plan.
