Countdown to Christmas
Kids Ministry is celebrating Jesus' birth!
Countdown to Christmas
Christmas is such a wonderful time of year! From the decorations to the presents piling up under the tree, it’s hard not to feel the excitement building towards December 25. But for Christian parents, the Christmas season is more than a time for holiday cheer and gift giving. During this time, we have an opportunity to help our children grow in their love for the true reason for all the celebration — Jesus! One way to do this is by learning more about why Jesus was born! Jesus, who came to seek and save His people, fulfilled over 300 prophecies through his birth, life and death.
Kids Ministry wants to celebrate the Greatest Gift we’ve ever received through special lessons and engaging activities Our hope is that we can partner with parents to teach their children that the coming of Jesus was prophesied and anticipated long before his arrival, and that the Christmas story began all the way back in Genesis!
Keep reading to learn more about the special things we have planned for Sundays, as well as a fun family activity that you can print right at home:
25 Days of Christmas
25 Daily Videos
Beginning December 1, Family Church Kids Ministry will be sharing a short video to help you and your family celebrate this Christmas Season. Each day, we are going to show you a different Prophecy that Jesus fulfilled. This is a great way for a family to come together and focus on the reason for the season.
**Make sure to follow us on Social Media to watch the daily video**
Download this printable paper chain and beginning December 1st, add a link to the paper chain each day for 25 days. Each link will have an Old Testament prophecy, as well as where in the New Testament that prophecy was fulfilled by Jesus’ birth. The ends of the paper can either be stapled or taped to form a loop and hung on your Christmas tree or other special place. Our prayer is that this will remind families of God’s faithfulness and turn their hearts to worship and honor the King of Kings this Christmas season!
