Toddlers

This month, our toddlers will hear the story of Jesus calming the storm (Matthew 8:23-27).  They will learn that Jesus is here to help us when we say, “I need Jesus.”

Two-Year Olds - Kindergarten

Happy birthday, Jesus! Yes, we know that Christmas is all about Jesus’ birthday, but does your preschooler know? It will be a new idea to some of them and we are excited that we get to share with preschoolers for the first time that Christmas is all about Jesus’ birthday! Jesus has a birthday? Yep, He sure does! And, we are going to celebrate it BIG!

We also want our preschoolers to know that the reason we celebrate Jesus’ birthday is because Jesus is God’s Son. God’s Son deserves a celebration as big as Christmas and a birthday bash as big as the one we’re going to give Him this month! He is that special! 

December 2: We will begin week one with the angel telling Mary she is going to have a very special baby. Wow! What a day that must have been!

December 9: We will follow Mary and Joseph as they travel to Bethlehem. There, in a stable, God’s only Son was born.

December 16: Today, we will hear about the most amazing birth announcement EVER as the angels go and tell shepherds nearby that Jesus has been born!

December 23: It is party time! We will sing happy birthday to Jesus and celebrate in such a super fun way that our preschoolers will know:

  • It’s Jesus’ birthday
  • We celebrate Jesus because He is God’s Son and . . .
  • Christmas is all about JESUS’ birthday!

December 30: Our 4’s, Pre-K and K friends will worship with their families, but our 3’s will still have class!  Today we will wrap up the big birthday bash with a visit from some wise men. They follow a star a very long way just to worship Jesus. Hey, they knew Jesus is special!

All month long we are sharing the true story that God gave us His only Son, Jesus, and HE is worth celebrating!

Treehouse (1st-3rd Grade)

December 2: God’s plan to save people from sin and death was not a secret plan. God used the prophets to give hope to His people. They said God would send a Messiah—born into the world as a baby to live the perfect life people fail to live and die the guilty death we deserve.(Isaiah 7,9,11; Micah 5)

December 9:  Today, we have our Second Sunday program.

December 16: The baby Jesus fulfilled Isaiah’s prophecy, as well as other Old Testament prophecies, about the coming Savior. Through His life, death, and resurrection, Jesus fulfilled God’s plan of redemption that God planned before the world began. (Matthew 1; Luke 1)

December 23: The birth of Jesus was good news! Jesus was not an ordinary baby. He was God’s Son, sent to earth from heaven. Jesus came into the world to bring peace between people and God. He came to save people from their sins and to be their King.  We’ll celebrate this good news with crafts, fun games, worship and snacks!

December 30:  There is no class today – our elementary students will worship with their families.

Route 45 (4th and 5th Grade)

December 2: Today we are beginning a new “Robots” series.  

Series Synopsis:  Robots are made to serve.  They’re designed to do work that we’d rather not do.  Jesus taught us if we want to follow Him, we need to be a servant to others like He was.  Through this series, our preteens will learn 3 ways to serve God and others by making these 3 unique robots to use in class each week.

Today’s focus will on prayer.  Our preteens will learn that we can serve others by praying for their needs.  We can also serve God by admitting when we sin and asking others to pray for our needs.  Our preteens will work together to construct a ‘Prayer Request Robot’. This robot has slots for inserting prayer requests that someone can take out and pray for.  (Scripture: James 5:16)

December 9:  Today, we have our Second Sunday program.

December 16: Today, our preteens will learn that we can serve others by trying to encourage people in our lives.  Our preteens will work together to construct an ‘Encouragement Robot’. This robot has an open top for preteens to put notes of encouragement in that can be read by a leader each week.  (Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 5:9-11)

December 23: We will take a break from our “Robot” series by celebrating the birth of our Savior with crafts, fun games, Bible reading, worship and snacks.

December 30:  There is no class today – our preteens will worship with their families.
