Merry Christmas to you! Thank you for entrusting your child to us throughout this year. We celebrate with you and your family the joy of Jesus’ birth. This week’s story in The Gospel Project for Kids was all about Jesus’ birth. When God sent Jesus to earth, He was born of a virgin, fulfilling Isaiah’s prophecy.
As you celebrate, recount for your kids the joyous news the shepherds shared. Help your kids understand the importance of sharing that wonderful news with others. Talk about the humble beginnings of our Savior, Jesus. Pray with your family, thanking God for sending His Son, Jesus, to be the Savior of the world.
Family Activity: Share with your kid(s) how you announced his or her birth to the world. Who was waiting in the waiting room? Who was the first person you called? Who was the first person to visit? Show any pictures or videos you might have of that special day. Make a list of the differences between that special day and the birth of Jesus.
