Today as we continue our series on what’s new in The Gospel Project® for Kids this fall, I have the privilege of introducing you to two of our new favorites over here at LifeWay Kids—Maegan Bruce and her puppet friend, Jesse!
As only God could orchestrate, our team was thinking through how to make our preschool videos more preschool-friendly when one of our LifeWay Kids leaders met Maegan at a conference for Children’s Pastors. A partnership was born.
Maegan grew up in a ministry family and has been involved in kids ministry since she was a kid herself. She has been doing ventriloquism since she was 9 years old. God has given her a unique talent, and we are so blessed to put God’s work in her on display in The Gospel Project for Preschool. We believe God is going to use Maegan and Jesse to help preschoolers connect with His truth as never before!
You will see Maegan and Jesse in each of our preschool Bible story videos as they introduce the biblical content. Most of the preschool Bible story videos will also feature Maegan providing the voice-over for the Bible story itself using her preschool-appropriate language and tone. You will also see Maegan in the music videos for each unit theme song and key passage song. Maegan is center-stage as she engages preschoolers through motions for each song. Don’t worry, adult leaders! We still have the words along the bottom for you.
Check out the videos from our sample sessions for Fall below.
