During this time when we can’t meet together in our physical spaces, we hope that these following weekly resources will provide an online option for you and your family to stay consistent. 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.

- NEED: Activity Page, aluminum foil, glue, scissors & sharpie
- DO: Copy Activity page and cut aluminum foil into pieces a little larger than the shields. Encourage the children to glue the foil on their shield. Write this month’s Bible verse on the front.
- SAY: “We’re going to make a shield. Glue the foil to the shield cutout. (Pause.) Super! Now, let’s add the memory verse. (Pause.) Hold up your shields and say the memory verse with me. ‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart,’ Proverbs 3:5. (Repeat.) Nice job, friends!”We learned in our Bible story that God gives us armor to put on each day to help us remember to trust God and go His way. A helmet is worn on a soldier’s head. It helps us remember that Jesus is our friend forever. A breastplate is worn on a soldier’s chest. When we choose to go God’s way, it’s like we wear a breastplate to protect our hearts. A shield is held up to block a soldier from things that might hurt them. God says when we trust Him, it’s like we hold up a shield to protect us. We always want to remember to trust God. We also have the Bible, which is God’s word. We can read it every day, and it will teach us how to go God’s way. God’s way is the best way so you can trust God. Who can trust God? [Bottom Line] I can trust God.”
- Cuddle Time
- Cuddle and pray, "Dear God, thank You for giving us armor to stand strong. When we remember that Jesus is our friend forever, it’s like putting on a helmet. When we choose to go Your way, it’s like wearing a breastplate to keep our heart safe. When we trust You, it’s like holding up a shield to protect us. And we have the Bible to teach us how to go Your way. We love You. In Jesus' name, amen."
