"Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
This week of March our thematic focus is Changing Weather. The kiddos will begin to explore the sometimes unpredictable weather patterns of Spring; including, wind rainstorms, and rainbows.
The dawn of Heaven's Dream. God on a cross. Humanity at its worst. Divinity at its best...God isn't stumped by an evil world.
He doesn't gasp in amazement at the depth of our faith or the depth of our failures. He knows the condition of the world...and loves it just the same. For just when we find a place where God would never be (like on a cross), we look again and there He is, in the flesh.
God on a cross? The creator of the universe sacrificing himself for His creation? How could this be? Who was this Jesus? He was - and is - a God with tears. A creator with a heart. Bloodstained royalty.
A God who became earth's mockery to save his children. How absurd to think that such nobility would go to such poverty to share such a treasure with such thankless souls.
How incredible to know that God himself died on a cross for his children.
But He did.
Yes, incredibly, He did.

AT THE BEGINNING OF APRIL - We will provide a sign-up sheet for any parent that is interested in donating a goodie to share. Remember, all food items must be store bought. We would love to see you all for this time of fellowship as we prepare our hearts for this moist precious of Christian celebrations. The Preschool will be closed on Good Friday, April 19th.
We will have a QUICK EGG HUNT the morning of the party. Your Kitten can bring their own Easter Basket for collecting purposes. The hunt will be held in our grassy courtyard between the school and the church facilities. We are asking that each family provide 12 plastic candy filled eggs for us to scatter and hide for our Kittens. PLEASE REMEMBER...NO PEANUT CANDY OF ANY KIND.
Puzzle Time is eagerly anticipated. The Kittens are continually challenged to try their skills with more puzzle pieces.
Bible Story Points for this month will include Joshua and Caleb, The Bronze Snake, Balaam and Balak and Moses' Farewell.

There is a Prayer Box always available for your personal prayer concerns. It is the gold box located on top of the brown coat cubby. We have provided a small notepad and pen on top of the box for your convenience.
It would be our privilege to lift your petitions up to the One who cares deeply about YOU. Nothing is too insignificant to bring before the Throne of Grace.
