"God's grace has saved you because of your faith in Christ.  Your salvation doesn't come from anything you do.  It is God's gift."
Ephesians 2:8

"God has always been involved in the world He created. We see His handiwork on display in creation. We see God’s love on display through Jesus, who came to rescue us. We respond to God in faith, believing in what we can’t see because of what we can see. When we focus on what we know to be true about God and the world God created, we can have faith in what we can’t see or fully understand."

July First Look


"These are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God." John 20:31, NLV

This month we continue with the incredible truth, I can believe in Jesus. This truth is so powerful that we will continue asking the question, "Who can believe in Jesus?" so our preschoolers will know, "I can believe in Jesus!"

It's hard to imagine, but one day, our preschoolers will make a choice that they think is so bad they'll wonder if Jesus still loves them. Or, they'll leave a classroom wrestling with what their teacher or professor just taught and how it fits with what they believe.

We want them to believe Jesus is real and know that He loves them no matter what. Jesus is who He said He is, and He wants to be their friend forever. That's the truth friends. You better believe it.
