Print and Go Christmas Sunday School Lesson
Are you in charge of the Christmas lesson this year at your church?
For some kids, this is the only day they may ever show up to your class and hear about Jesus.
But no pressure!!
It seems like it should be an easy lesson to teach about Jesus’ birth at Christmas. But put in the mix of kids who think they know the nativity story by heart and add that to the first timers who don’t even know who Jesus is, and it can be a tricky lesson to master.
What about those kids who think they already know the Christmas story?
I’ve found that keeping the lesson fun engages those “I’m here every Sunday kids” and keeping it simple aids in the understanding of those kids who only show up at Christmas. AND more importantly, let’s you share the Gospel message of Jesus’ love to BOTH.
This Christmas lesson for elementary aged students has everything you need to ensure you have a successful lesson no matter who shows up.
