Here’s what’s happening in Kids’ Church . . .
Christmas Song Practice!
Please bring your kids directly to Kids’ Church at 10:30 again this Sunday so we can practice our Christmas song that we’ll sing in the service on December 24th.
Sunday’s Lesson: Jesus changes our lives
On Sunday we learned about the Magi and how they traveled a great distance to find the Messiah. The Magi are very important because they show us how Jesus came to change the world.
Think about it. These men stopped what they were doing and traveled possibly for weeks to find the new King. They hadn’t even met Jesus yet, but seeking Him changed their lives. Some scholars say they may have come from as far as 1,000 miles away. Jesus came for everyone – those near and far. He came to change the world.
We also learned about King Herod. His reaction to Jesus was the opposite of the wise men. He did NOT welcome the change that Jesus came to bring.
How will we respond to Jesus? Will we be like the Magi who welcomed Him and the change He came to bring, or will we be like Herod who fought against it? Let Jesus in. Your life will never be the same.
Learn this week’s verse together as a family:
“Anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person.
The old life is gone; a new life has begun! 2 Corinthians 5:17
The Set up
Prepare your child for next week and spend time in God’s Word together.
This coming Sunday we will focus on the very valuable gifts the Magi brought to Jesus and learn to give our best to God as we remember that He gave His best when He sent His Son to earth.
- Our Bible reading will be from Matthew 2:1-12 again. Read through the passage again with your kids during the week at dinner or bedtime.
- Talk about what we can give to God to show our love.
- Pray together prayers of thanks and adoration for what God has done.
This Friday will be the last Kids’ Clubs night of our fall session until we start up again in February. Children in Kindergarten through 6th grade are welcome to join us for our Christmas party this Friday night from 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Our church’s after school program has openings for the Christmas break (December 26th – 29th.) If you need child care during the school vacation week, please call the Kids’ Place office at 781-321-9784.
