This week in Preschool, the kids joined Kit for another game of the Goody Gumdrops Game! They sang and danced at the La La Lollipop Square, heard the story of Mary and Joseph hearing the good news about Jesus coming from Gramma Ginger, and learned "I Have Heard the Good News" in the Sweet Tree Forest. By collecting all three gumdrops, they won the game!


Need to Know: "I Have Heard The Good News!" 

Christ Connection: Today we heard the good news! Does anyone remember what good news we heard today? That's right! We heard that God's son was going to be born! Do you know who God's son is? Yes! Jesus! Jesus was born like you and me, and lived on earth. Then he died to save our lives. That is good news! 

Bible Story: Matt 1:18-21; Luke 1:26-56

God sent an angel to tell Mary good news! The angel surprised her. The angel said, "Don't be afraid, Mary! God has important news for you. You will have a baby. Name Him Jesus. He is the Savior God promised to send--God's own Son." 

Mary wanted to TELL her good news! She went to see her cousin, Elizabeth. Elizabeth would soon have a baby, too! Elizabeth also knew that Mary's baby would be the Savior God promised to send. Elizabeth and Mary praised God together! 

God sent an angel to another person. Joseph was going to be Mary's husband. In a dream, an angel talked to him. 

The angel said, "Don't be afraid to get married to Mary. The baby is the Savior God promised to send. Name the baby Jesus." Joseph believed God's promise was about to come true!

God's Story For Me Bible, Gospel Light, p.272-275

Don't forget to ask your child the two most important questions!: 1. Did you have fun?  2. What did you learn? 

Don't forget, our services times change THIS WEEK! We will have 2 services at our Leon location at 9:30 and 11, and one at our Tharpe street location at 11am
