FOLLOW THE STAR: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON CHRISTMAS

SERIES OVERVIEW:

It’s the time of year when Christmas decorations begin to fill our homes. From the twinkling lights, to the sparkling stars, to the glittering snow, there is light all around us! The very first Christmas didn’t have Christmas trees or ornaments, but it did have something special: light! Just like a star in the sky led the wise men to Jesus on the very first Christmas, today our Christmas lights remind us to continue looking toward Jesus, the One we celebrate each Christmas. In this 4-week Christmas series, kids will discover the many ways God gets our attention and guides us toward Him: through His directionthrough other peoplethrough our Savior, and through the hope Jesus has given us.

Even though Christmas time can be one of the busiest time of the year for families, make sure you take some time this month to spend quality time with your kids, teaching them the true meaning of Christmas and just enjoying each other. Sometimes the best memories are the simple times we spend together enjoying each other’s presence. 

If you’re subscribed to Grow Your Ministry, now would be a good time to attach Parent Tip Video #11 from your Parents section.
