Advent Day 10

God With Us

Read: Matthew 1:22-26

Special verses:  All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us). – Matthew 1:22-23

Discuss: Do you know how your parents chose your name when you were born?  Does it have a special meaning?  We have talked a lot about all of Jesus’ names in the last week!  Can you remember some of the names we have read?  All of these names held special meanings for God’s people.  We need a rescuer, AND a king, AND a light, AND a sacrifice.  Jesus is ALL of these and more.  He is God with us!

Week 2 Craft: A very simple paper angel craft can be found here.  If you have more time, here is a link to a great nativity ornament you can make with your kids.
