In Preschool Ministry, our main focus is building the foundation of biblical truths by applying three bottom lines to everything we do:
- God loves me,
- God made me
- Jesus wants to be my forever friend
In order to apply those three bottom lines in our 3 Year-old thru PreK classrooms, we have implemented small groups. Not only are the kids getting more focused and intentional discussion time, but they are also building relationships with their small group leaders. A small group leader in LP Preschool is someone who, in addition to their parents, is able to show the love of Christ to these kiddos.
Recently, a parent told me how their child’s small group leader is making a difference in not only their child’s life, but her as well. The mom began by sharing with me that her son had a birthday in January. The small group leader gave the child a Veggies Tales movie for a birthday gift on the Sunday following his birthday. The parent pursued me to share how impressed they were by the show of love from their son’s small group leader. Parents do not expect their child to receive a gift from a Sunday morning volunteer. This parent was so overwhelmed with joy for her son. He was able to come to church and enjoy learning about Christ. The mom is being impacted because this is something that she never felt when attending her church growing up. A sweet gesture from a small group leader is making such an impact on the parent. This sweet story reminded me of why we do small groups with our kids. We want every child and parent to feel the love of Christ when they attend church. Small group leaders are fulfilling this every week in LP Preschool.
