April’s Basic Truth: Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
April’s Focus Question and Bottom Line: What does Jesus want me to do? Jesus wants me to tell others about Him.
April’s Memory Verse: “Go and make disciples of all nations” Matthew 28:19

Jesus is alive. Wow! That news really shook up the world. It changed everything. In fact, you could call it “The Great Shakeup.”
Our Bottom Line this month is, “Jesus wants me to tell others about Him.” We’re starting the month sharing the Great Commission with our preschoolers. We want them to get excited about telling others about Jesus and how much He loves them. We’re encouraging preschoolers to, “Go tell everyone, everywhere about Jesus.”
Then, preschoolers will learn about men who did exactly what God asked of them. They went out and really shook things up. Our preschool friends will learn about Peter who shared about Jesus even when he was in jail. They’ll hear the story of Saul and how his life was changed and he became Paul. Finally, they’ll hear the story of Paul and Silas and how God really shook things up when they were in jail. All month long, preschoolers will discover how they, too, can shake things up by telling others about Jesus.
