WE’RE LEARNING… God gave us Jesus.
MEMORY VERSE: “God has given a son to us.” Isaiah 9:6 (NCV)
BIBLE STORY: Jesus is Born I Luke 2:1-7
This month we’re learning, “God gave us Jesus.” God loves us so much that He gave us His Son, Jesus, to be our friend forever!
We will learn the story, “Baby Jesus is Born,” in Luke 2:1-7. Mary was about to have a baby and was traveling with Joseph back to their hometown of Bethlehem. When there was nowhere to sleep. A kind man helped them by letting them stay in his stable. While they were there, baby Jesus was born, and we celebrate His birth at Christmas! God loves us so much that He gave us His Son, Jesus. We can know how much God loves us because He gave us His Son, Jesus, to be our friend forever.
We made a Bible Story Meal Time Mat to help us remember that God gave us Jesus. Place the Bible Story Meal Time Mat at the table where your toddler eats. Before each meal, point to the placemat and review the Bible story with your toddler:
- Who is the baby in the picture? (Jesus)
- Who gave us Jesus? (God gave us Jesus)
Say, “That’s right! God loves us so much that He gave us His Son, Jesus, to be our friend forever. Who gave us Jesus?” Encourage toddlers to say, “God gave us Jesus!”
