Week 1 – November 30/December 1
Bible Story: The Angel and Mary | Luke 1:26-33, 38, 46-49
Story Focus: God told us He would give us Jesus. An angel told Mary she was going to have a baby. An angel! Can you imagine Mary lying in bed, looking up into the starry, starry night as she pondered the angel’s words, “You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High.” Oh…the wonder that must have filled her heart!
Week 2 – December 7/8
Bible Story: Jesus Is Born | Luke 2:1-7
Story Focus: Jesus is born. We find Mary and Joseph welcoming God’s Son, Jesus, into the world in a stable. There were no trumpets or banners waving. No fancy palaces or crowds pushing to see. God revealed Himself on earth through a humble birth in a humble place.
Week 3 – December 14/15
Bible Story: The Shepherds | Luke 2:8-20
Story Focus: The angels tell about Jesus. God sent Jesus for each and every one of us, even the shepherds. God sent angels into the starry, starry night, on the very same day Jesus was born, to tell shepherds that, “Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is the Messiah, the Lord.” They were so excited they hurried to find this baby!
Week 4 – December 21/22/24
Bible Story: Happy Birthday Jesus! | Retell the Entire Christmas Story
Story Focus: God gave us Jesus because He loves us. Retelling the Christmas story is the best way to celebrate Jesus’ birthday and how much God loves us!
Week 5 – December 28/29
Bible Story: The Wise Men | Matthew 2:1-2, 9-11
Story Focus: The wise men come to see God’s Son. They looked into the starry, starry night and followed God’s lead all the way to the child, who they rightly called, ‘King of the Jews.’ They came and presented their gifts and worshiped the One who had come to be the Savior of the world. We can only imagine the wonder on their faces as they finally saw what had been prophesied for so, so long.
