These resources are what your preschoolers experience on a weekly basis, so we are excited for you as parents to take part with your child!
We love you and are praying that God brings comfort and peace during this time. Below you will find this week’s resources. You can also find this content on our Heights App – found in the Apple App or Google Play stores.

- SAY: “In our story, we heard about a man who was walking down the road one day when he was robbed and hurt really bad. He needed help. You have a doctor's bag, but it's empty. Let's fill it with things that can help the hurt man. What things should a doctor have in their bag? (pause) Bandages. Do you see a picture of bandages? (pause) Add the bandages to your doctor's bag. (pause) What else should go in the doctor's bag? (continue naming all the items and having them glue the items to their bags.) You filled your doctor's bag with lots of things that can help people who are hurt. The man was lying on the road and asked someone to help him, but the first man walked right by him. Another man walked by and the hurt man asked him to help. He walked right by, too. A third person walked by, and the hurt man asked for help. This third man was a Samaritan. Samaritans and the hurt man's people were not friends, but the Samaritan stopped and helped the man. The Samaritan gave the hurt man bandages, put him on his donkey, and took him to a place to stay until he was better. The Samaritan was a great helper. We can be helpers, too. We can help everyone: parents, teachers, friends, everyone! The imprtant thing that Jesus taught us in this story is that we can help everyone. I'm so glad we have a friend like Jesus to teach us important things. Who teaches me important things? [Bottom Line] Jesus teaches me important things."
