Welcome to the Watermark Plano Kids Kit Preschool edition! Our heart is to share God’s truth with you and your kids in a simple and engaging format. We miss seeing each of our sweet preschoolers each Sunday, but hopefully our Plano version will bring some familiar faces to you in your home. Find a time this week that works for your family to WATCH, READ, DISCUSS and DO together!
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. We teach the major stories of the Bible in mostly chronological order, and each week there is a Teaching Truth we want kids to hear and learn about God and His Story.

This Week's Teaching Truth:
Current Unit: Parables
Current Memory Verse: "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me." John 14:6
You can read to your children the NLT passage below or from The Beginner’s Bible, “The Lost Sheep” (p. 391-396).
3 So Jesus told them this story: 4 “If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them gets lost, what will he do? Won’t he leave the ninety-nine others in the wilderness and go to search for the one that is lost until he finds it? 5 And when he has found it, he will joyfully carry it home on his shoulders. 6 When he arrives, he will call together his friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.’ 7 In the same way, there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven’t strayed away!
Hide and Seek the Sheep: One family member will be the shepherd and the other members will be the sheep. Give the “sheep” a moment to hide around the house or in the yard. The “shepherd” searches for the “sheep”. Once a “sheep” is found, the “shepherd” gives them a big hug and says, “I’m so glad I found you!” The found “sheep” stay close to the “shepherd” as they continue to look for the rest of the “sheep” in the family. Once everyone has been found, remind the children that Jesus came to seek and save the lost.
