September

KIDS COVE | Nursery & Preschool

This month, we are going to use the super sweet theme of Ice Cream Sundae, along with the life of Joseph, to teach preschoolers that God has a plan for them. When we put all of the parts of Joseph’s story together—just as with an ice cream sundae—it gives us a sweet reminder that we can trust that God has a plan for all of us, and it is always best. We just have to wait until God is done putting all of the parts together.
