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. Colorful Snack
SUPPLIES: Banana, fruit roll up, pretzel sticks, chocolate chips, knife
Make a sweet treat for a snack or dessert. Grab a banana, cut it in half so you have two short pieces, and then peel it. Use a multi-colored fruit rollup for the coat and wrap it around the banana. You can use a toothpick to hold it. Use two stick pretzels for arms and place them in the banana. Use two chocolate chips for the eyes and a few for his mouth. As you eat and enjoy your treat, talk about the story with your child using these questions.
- Why were Joseph’s brothers jealous?
- What sad thing happened to Joseph?
- Even though bad things happened, who could Joseph trust?
- Can we trust God in all circumstances, good and bad?
- Why can we always trust God? (God loves us. God is good. God is always with us.)
2. Trust Obstacle Course
SUPPLIES: Items to build an obstacle course
Together with your child, create a simple obstacle course through an open space in your house. Be sure to include obstacles that need to be stepped over, crouched under, climbed or jumped on. Pair up with your child and ask him to trust you while you help lead him through the obstacle course. For an added challenge, ask him to close his eyes while you lead him. Then you can switch places and have your child lead you through the obstacle course, too. When you are finished, talk about how we can to trust God just like you trusted each other to get through the obstacle course safely.
3. Joseph and His Coat
SUPPLIES: Coffee filter, markers, scissors, spray bottle with water
Using a coffee filter, have your child color the filter with washable markers, making the coffee filter as colorful as possible. Then using a spray bottle filled with water, lightly squirt the coffee filter so the colors run together. Cut a small slit in the center of the coffee filter and slide a popsicle stick through the opening. Tape the filter to the popsicle stick and draw a simple face on the stick so it becomes Joseph and his coat of many colors.
