It’s your 4/5-year-old preschooler’s turn to take part in the Walk with Jesus Milestone!
This is such a fun milestone! Here’s how it works. Please sign up for a week to carry the plush Jesus doll. Then, pick Jesus up on Sunday at the end of the Sunday School hour (10:50am) at the education desk. You will return Jesus, along with your worksheet, at the education desk the following Sunday at the start of Sunday School (10am). This ensures Jesus is there for the next person signed up. If there is not a Sunday pick up where it is possible for you to drop off Jesus the following Sunday please email email Pastor Sami ([email protected]) and we will make an alternative plan.
During the week plush Jesus is in your home, please take some pictures of where Jesus went with your child and send them to Pastor Sami at [email protected] You’ll also fill out the worksheet you received in the milestone mailing (or find extras at the education desk). Your photos & information sheet details will be used attached in a slideshow during worship March 31. Also that day, you and your preschooler(s) will gather for Family Time in the Friendship Room from 10-10:50am. This is in lieu of Sunday School for Sunday learners. Together we’ll celebrate, reflect, and practice Faith 5.
The goal is that this milestone will reinforce what you are teaching your child about how Jesus is with him or her everywhere. Your child can take Jesus to school, on errands, to practice, in the car, to a friend’s house, EVERYWHERE! Jesus loves it all! If anyone asks your child about Jesus or why he or she has Jesus, you can teach your child to say, “Jesus walks with me everywhere I go, every day, and he walks with you too.”
We know there are some preschool friends who participate in the preschool group twice to keep in stride with when they start kindergarten. If that is your child, and he or she did this milestone last year, we hope they will repeat this milestone fun again this year.
Get signed up & HAVE FUN!
