While we are unable to gather together this Sunday, our NextGen team is committed to ensuring our children and students still have an opportunity to hear the Bible in a way that connects with where they are developmentally.
Preschool-Middle School Videos
Check us out on YouTube (Smythe Street Church) each week to see the current week’s Bible Story; there is a playlist for Preschool, Elementary and Preteen (Grade 4/5- Middle School).
Preschool & Elementary Activity
This week we’ve sent snail mail to any of our Preschool and Elementary children that have attended SSC in 2020. Open it together as a family on Sunday and take a few minutes to watch the Bible Story (they are just 10 minutes long). Post pictures and videos as you work through the craft or daily activities to our SSC NextGen FB page. Let’s inspire each other in raising our children to follow Jesus!
If you did not receive mail and would like to, please email Pastor Heidi (email@example.com) and she will add you to our mailing list. If you have a printer at home you can download this Month’s devotionals here: Devotions & Crafts
If you received the Preschool craft supplies for June here’s a little explanation:
1. A little colouring book of Jesus’ timeline on earth coincides nicely with your Preschooler’s Bible Stories this month
2. Take it one week at a time or colour all the people pictures and add them along with the Jesus story stickers, Memory verse sticker etc. to the card stock provided. Tie the yarn through the hole making a loop and you’ve got a door-hanger to remind you of the entire month’s Bible Stories. Use it to retell them over and over again!
Middle & High School

Parent Cue App
A resource for parents is the “Parent Cue App” (Apple, Android) to help intentionally work God into a few regular rhythms in your family’s life. The App is full of practical suggestions, articles to encourage you in your parenting, access to that week’s Bible story for your child and much more!
