UpTown: Where God's Wonder is Found

You’re a pre-schooler, and the world is bursting with newness. Each day is filled with one new discovery after another. Where did that bird come from? Look, the moon is shaped funny tonight! Who thought to color the butterfly like that?

"First Look", the "orange"-based curriculum strategy for preschool, uses engaging activities to introduce pre-school children (ages one to five) to God. First Look gives children a first impression of their heavenly Father and the wonder of His love for each one of them. See VIDEO (click) about First Look.

Simple Strategy

First impressions are important. That’s why we designed our First Look curriculum: to give preschool children a first impression of their loving Heavenly Father. The curriculum keeps it simple and fun, repeating one basic truth about God all month long. First Look also helps children understand worship and introduces them to small group time. It encourages children to talk to God any time at any place.

The activities tickle all the senses making mastering the concepts a blast. Crazy fun activities to crafts to large group Bible story and worship time to small group Bible time, it’s all part of the plan to help a child believe three key things by the time he’s five years old:

  • God made me
  • God loves me
  • Jesus wants to be my friend forever
  • But all the simple fun of First Look means little if it’s not reinforced at home. That’s why we provide activity ideas and conversation starters for parents to use with their children at home.
