Bible Story: The Angel and Mary | Luke 1:26-33, 38, 46
Main Point: I can hear 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, God sends an angel to tell Mary she will give birth to His Son, Jesus.
Mary heard the good news from an angel that God’s Son would be born. And even more awesome than that – the angel also told her she would be Jesus’ mother! She must have been so excited to hear that good news! We can be excited, too, because we get to hear the good news about Jesus’ birth in lots of different ways as we count down to Christmas!
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.
