Happy Birthday, Jesus! • Luke 2
We talked about how Jesus is the greatest gift anyone can receive (even cooler than any Hotwheels car or doll) and took the time to celebrate Jesus’ birth the Savior of the World! we even got to sing happy birthday to him. Prayer: “God, thank You so much for what today means! It’s Jesus’ birthday. Thank You for sending Your only Son to show us how much you LOVE us. What an amazing gift. Help us to remember that today is ONLY about Jesus! We love You, God. Amen.”
This week we celebrated Christmas in our December series The Big Give: Think Outside the Box!🎄 where we are talking about Generosity: Generosity is making someone’s day by giving something away!
Key Question: What does Christmas mean to you? The Christmas story is one of the most familiar stories in the Bible—even if you didn’t grow up in church. At some point, kids need to decide for themselves if they believe it’s true if Christmas is more than the presents and time with family.
We pray this will be the Christmas many kids will see Jesus in a new way and decide to put their faith in Him. It’s Christmas! We head to the familiar story in Luke 2:1-18. While people expected a new king born in a palace, God had other plans in mind. Jesus was born in a place where they kept the animals. No royal robes, not much public fanfare, just Mary and Joseph cuddling Jesus for the first time. God announced His gift to shepherds helping us realize that Jesus was a gift for everyone.
Bottom Line: God gave us Jesus. Kids will get the chance to celebrate Jesus, God’s most generous gift. They’ll discover why God sent Jesus to us, and what it means for us to show they show generosity to the people in their life. God Times Week 4
