This Winter in Sunday School
A Series from the Gospels on Christmas
SERIES OVERVIEW: Grab your sandals, sunblock, and swim gear because it’s time for a Christmas Vacation! We’ll be making sand angels and roasting chestnuts around an open bonfire on our tropical getaway. You’ve never experienced Christmas like this! In this five-week series, we’ll focus on the birth of Jesus and the way God had been planning things from the very beginning. We’ll see how God sent Jesus for a reason, learn to trust God’s timing, understand why God gives us what’s best, and see how Jesus is why we celebrate because Jesus is God’s gift to the world.

Kids in Worship
Whether we are worshiping at home or at church, or anywhere along our way, it can be challenging with young kids to keep them engaged. Elementary kids attend worship with their families the first Sunday of each month. To make children’s time in worship more meaningful check out these strategies. You may find them helpful too! Additionally, here are a few book recommendations. Parenting in the Pew by Robbie Castleman and A Children’s Guide to Worship & Come Worship with Me by Ruth Boling.
Tip of the Month:
We’ve all had those moments when our kids share an “unconventional” prayer request, like to get a new puppy for Christmas or that they would develop superhero powers (thanks, MCU). When you’re asked to pray that their soccer team wins their next game, it can be easy to write off prayer time as something to endure rather than something transformative. But prayer is so much more than treating God like a magic genie in a bottle. Here are some important truths to keep in mind as you teach your kids about prayer.
The Christmas story has been told in so many different ways through the years, but you’ve never heard it told like this. Enjoy this hilarious rendition of Christmas According to Kids – Merry Christmas!!
