Motion :: Week of December 29

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Read 1 John 4:9-12 together as a family to learn about God’s love for us. God showed us how much He loves us by sending Jesus to be our Savior. We can love others because God loved us first. 

In Motion this December we’ve been learning about compassion — caring enough to do something about someone else’s need. The way we show compassion is connected to our source of compassion. Take a look at what this might look like in someone’s life today!

Here are a few activities you can use to help your child apply this lesson to his or her life in a fun way. You can choose to do one or both together as a family.

Safari :: Week of December 22

MONTHLY FOCUS: Jesus is God’s Son.
MEMORY VERSE: “God has given a son to us.” Isaiah 9:6 (NCV)
BIBLE STORY: Baby Jesus is Born I Luke 2:1-7

This week we decorated an ornament to remind us that Jesus is God’s Son. Grab the ornament your toddler decorated and review the Bible story with your toddler to help them remember that God keeps His promises!

Encourage your toddler to place his or her ornament on your family’s Christmas tree or somewhere around the house where he or she will see it every day. While your toddler hangs the ornament, review the story of Jesus’ birth in Luke 2:1-7. Encourage your toddler to point to baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph, and the animals in the picture on the ornament.

Say, “This ornament will help us remember Jesus is God’s Son! Who is God’s Son?” Encourage your toddler to say, “Jesus is God’s Son!”


Quest :: Week of December 22

 

Monthly Focus: Why is Jesus special? (Jesus is God’s Son.)
Bible Story: Happy Birthday Jesus! | Retell Entire Christmas Story
Main Point: Happy Birthday Jesus! 
Memory Verse: “God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son.” John 3:16 GNT

Happy birthday, Jesus! We celebrate Jesus’ birthday because Jesus is God’s son. God’s son deserves a celebration as big as Christmas itself and a birthday bash as big as the one we’re going to give Him this month! He is that special!

So gather up all the birthday excitement and Christmas spirit you have, because we are going to party all month long! It’s not just balloons and party hats, though. We are sharing the true story that God gave us His only son, Jesus, and He is worth our best celebration! 

This week, we heard the Bible story about when God gave us the best gift ever, His only Son, Jesus.

Play some of your favorite Christmas music and sing and dance along with your child. Talk about how the angels celebrated Jesus by singing to God after they told the shepherds the good news that Jesus, God’s Son, had been born.
