(6 months-3 years)
Christen and Marianne have fearlessly lead the nursery for the last 6 months. They have brought in some fun new crafts and extra love for the babies in nursery. However, in January they will both be stepping down from this role to spend more time with their families and prepare for changes to come in this upcoming year. Find them at Church and give them an extra Thank You for leading this ministry so well!
The theme this month: The First Christmas Gift
Bottom Line: Jesus teaches us about God!
We are teaching the kids about how God gave us His Son, Jesus, as the very first Christmas present. Jesus is Immanuel, God with us. He shines a light so we can see what God is like!
Bible Verse: Matthew 1:23 NLT “… they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us.’”
The theme this month: The Big Give: Think outside the box
Bottom Line: Generosity: Making someone's day by giving something away
Every good and perfect gift comes from God. In fact, generosity is at the very core of God’s character—He even gave us His own son, Jesus! Jesus showed unwavering generosity as He traded His life for ours. And, because God gave us Jesus and Jesus gave His life, we can be generous towards others. Not only that, but when we are generous towards others, we prove that we love God by loving the people He loves. We pray that this Christmas, as kids celebrate God’s amazing generosity, they’ll see how they can be generous with their family, friends, and neighbors.
Bible Verse: 1 Timothy 6:8 NIV "Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.
