Bible Story: Shepherds | Luke 2:6-18
Main Point: I can share the good news.
Memory Verse: “I bring you good news of great joy.” Luke 2:10 (NLV)
There are so many special sights, sounds, and smells that fill the air as we count down to one of the most important days of the year: the day we celebrate Jesus’ birth! As we count down to Christmas in Quest, we’ll think about why this holiday is so special — not just because of all the fun that happens around us, but because it’s when we celebrate the most special Person who ever lived!
In this week’s lesson angels go to the shepherds in the fields and announce the birth of Jesus, God’s Son.
I can only imagine how excited those shepherds were to hear about the best gift ever and to actually SEE Jesus on the night He was born. After the shepherds visited baby Jesus they shared the good news with others. The good news is that God sent His Son Jesus to save us, and we should share it with everyone we know, too. Jesus is the most special Christmas gift ever!
December Memory Verse
This month join us in helping your child learn Luke 2:10 (NLV). Children can recite the verse every week in December to earn a special memory verse card. When your child receives a memory verse card celebrate with them on learning their verse and put the card on their Quest poster.
I bring you (bring hands to chest)
good news (right arm up)
of great joy. (left arm up)
Luke 2:10 (NLV)
It’s good news that God sent His Son Jesus to be our Savior. This is the best news we could ever get! This verse tells us this good news brings us great joy! Practice this verse with your child so they can celebrate the good news and recite it to their eGroup Leader this weekend in Quest.
