CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “God gave us Jesus!”

STORYTELLER: “That’s right! The Bible tells us God sent His son, Jesus because He loves us so much. Let’s learn our memory verse this month so that we can remember how much God loves us. I’ll say the memory verse first, and then you can say it with me a few times after that.

STORYTELLER: “‘God (point arms straight up) has given (extend hands forward) a son (pretend to rock a baby) to us.’ (point thumbs to chest) Isaiah 9:6(open hands like a book)

STORYTELLER: “I’m so glad we learned that God told Mary He was going to give her a son! We’re going to learn soon that this wasn’t going to be a normal baby, but a special delivery.

STORYTELLER: “Remind me again, ‘How do we know God loves us?’

CHILDREN AND STORYTELLER: “God gave us Jesus!”

STORYTELLER: “Yes! That’s the truth, friends. We should thank God for telling Mary He would send His son, and we can do that by praying. Let’s all bow our heads and pray together.”

STORYTELLER: “Dear God, thank You for telling us You were going to send Your son, Jesus. We love You and thank You. Amen.”

STORYTELLER: “Great listening today, friends! Before you leave today, I’ve been given a special delivery that will help you learn more about God’s great gift. Let me hand each of your leaders this special delivery and then I’ll send you back to your eGroup.”
