This Sunday will be full of fun as we welcome the “Puppets” to large group with all the Elementary students and our Preschoolers will be making Ginger Bread Mangers! There will be some good lessons to go along with the added festivities.
Our Elementary students will continue learning about “The Big Give”!
Key Question: What are some ways you can give this Christmas? By this time in the month, kids might know what gifts they are giving to others. This question isn’t about the physical gifts kids can give, but the creative ways they can show generosity to others throughout the Christmas season.
We will take a look at important generosity principle Paul wrote to Timothy in 1 Timothy 6:18. Command the rich to do good. Tell them to be rich in doing good things. They must give freely. They must be willing to share, (NIrV). Paul knows that our wealth isn’t based in how much we have but in what we do with it.
Bottom Line: Look for creative ways to give. As we have gifts and giving on our minds, Christmas is a natural time to talk to kids about generosity. Often, they feel like they don’t have anything to give. Thankfully, all of us can be rich in good deeds. We’ll help kids discover how they can look around and discover all sorts of ways they can give to others with their time and talents.
Our Preschoolers will learn more about the birth of Jesus, specifically about the Shepherds. Our Savior came in a very quiet way. In fact, the first people to hear of His birth were some shepherds out in a field. Can you imagine how those shepherds felt that night? Our preschoolers will hear how a whole host of angels shared the awesome news that Jesus had been born with shepherds in the field. The shepherds hurried to see baby Jesus and then rushed to tell others all about Him.
