Dear kids, parents and families!

April showers bring May flowers! We are now entering the month of May and it’s been great seeing the buds and young leaves slowly growing. Although this spring has been interesting to say the least (snow in mid-April!?), God never ceases to amaze with His mighty power and all the little and big things He has done. When I look at creation, I see God’s work in every detail, in every breath, in every moment. God is indeed making all things new, even when we can’t physically see it yet.

Speaking of new, we begin a new theme this month for both First Look and 252Kids. 

For our Preschoolers, when life gives you lemons, make LEMONade! Our First Look theme for May is titled, “Lemonade Stand: God Loves Me.

For our Elementary kids, sometimes life gets messy and we oftentimes get stuck in a rut. Our 252Kids theme for May is titled, “Unstuck: Don’t Give Up.
