We’re excited to begin a new season with you and your sweet preschoolers. This month we will be teaching kids the bottom line, I can trust God, and the memory verse, “Trust the Lord with all your heart” (Proverbs 3:5, NCV). Click here to view the motions for the memory verse!
During September kids will hear the following stories:
- Noah (God’s Plan) • Genesis 6:8-33; 7:1-24 | I can believe what God says. God told Noah that a flood was coming, but that God would keep Noah safe if he followed God’s plan. God told Noah to build a huge ark and put his family and every kind of animal inside it. Noah obeyed, and the flood came. God kept his promise and kept Noah safe!
- Noah (God’s Promise) • Genesis 8:1–9:17 | God keeps His promises. After many, many days, God dried up some of the water so that there was dry land for Noah and his family and all of the animals. He put a rainbow in the sky and told Noah that the rainbow was the sign of His promise that He would never send a flood to cover the whole earth again.
- Jonah • Jonah 1:1–3:10 | I should go God’s way. The people of Ninevah did not follow God, but God still loved them. God picked Jonah to give a message to the Ninevites, so they could learn how to be friends with God! Jonah didn’t want to give the message, he didn’t think those bad people deserved a second chance, so he ran away. He ended up on a boat, and then in the ocean, and then in the belly of a big fish! After talking to God, Jonah decided to obey and talk to the Ninevites. They decided to follow God and Jonah learned that God’s plan is the best!
- Naaman • 2 Kings 5:1-14 | I can trust God even when it’s hard. Naaman had a skin disease and went to Elisha for help. Elisha told Naaman that God would heal him if he washed himself seven times in the dirty Jordan river. That plan was very different than what Naaman expected, so he got angry and didn’t want to do it. But when he decided to trust God and obey, he was healed!

We can’t wait to see what God has to teach us—kids and adults alike—about trusting Him this September. See you soon!
