Our Preschool Ministry provides an engaging, supportive and inclusive environment
for our children to grow in the knowledge and understanding of God.
Through Bible stories, puppet time and praise songs each week, children are invited to experience God’s love and learn how to follow Jesus. As we teach our children to keep God’s Word in their hearts, each week we encouraged families to be intentional in memorizing the memory verse together.

Bible Time: The Fruit of the Spirit - Kindness
Today We Learn That:
The Fruit of the Spirit is Kindness. The bible says, “And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32
What is kindness? Kindness is being considerate of others and putting others before ourselves.
Kindness means responding politely when being complimented when you say want to say no to
something or even when others are being means to you.
When we are kind, we honor God and not ourselves.
The best way to show God’s love in our hearts is when we do not repay unkindness by being mean or punishing the person who did us wrong. Instead, we chose to forgive them as God forgives us. God sees our hearts and by being kind to others despite what they do, makes God happy and pleases His heart. The bible teaches us not to pay back wrong for wrong but instead wait for God and He will deliver you. Proverbs 22:20
Remember, ignoring others, leaving them out or telling them to go away is unkind and would hurt their feelings. We need to treat others like how we want to be treated. We can begin by showing others that they are valuable and important. “Do unto others as you would have them do to you.” Luke 6:31
Just like our Kindness Cherries, they will always include others and are kind in words and actions. So be KIND and let your little light SHINE!
Bible Story - The Story of Joseph and His Brothers
Joseph showed kindness to his brothers and took care of them and their families despite what his brothers did to him out of jealousy. He even forgave them for throwing him into the well. Joseph is a good example of showing kindness to those who have wrong us. With the help of the Holy Spirit, we too can learn to be kind-hearted.
Joseph’s coat – colorful and bright-
Helped to put him in a plight.
Jealous brothers, evil plan,
In a well, it all began.
Egypt! Slavery! Jail! Dream!
God undid their awful scheme.
Joseph ruled the kingdom’s grain.
Forgave his brothers in his reign.
Brave, godly, humble and free,
Second in command was he!
