I can thank God for my friends

Posted by Central Preschool

We will learn about the faithful friendship of Jonathan and David and how thankful they were for each other. Jonathan wasn’t just thankful with his words. He looked for a way to show David he was thankful by giving David special things that belonged to him. We can show our friends we are thankful for them, too.

November 2021 Memory Verse

November 2021 OVERVIEW

Memory Verse:

"I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart." (Psalm 111:1)

Key Question:

Who can you thank for everything?

Bottom Line:

I can thank God for everything.

This month we are going to use a community garden to teach our preschoolers that “I can thank God for everything.” Wow, there is so much goodness in that one statement!

First of all, I can thank. Choosing to be thankful is the road to contentment, joy, and peace. And we want our preschoolers to have all of that goodness in their lives. Second, I can thank God. Thanking God is how we acknowledge the One giving us all the good in our lives. And third, I can thank God for everything. Yes, even the not so good stuff. When we thank God for everything, we are showing God that we believe He can use ALL things for His purpose and nothing is too big for Him.

We want our preschoolers to know they can thank God for everything. We want them to experience the contentment, joy, and peace that comes from a thankful heart.
