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: See instructions for a cute popsicle stick Nativity ornament here. If you are swimming in LEGO bricks at your house, challenge your kids to build a LEGO nativity like the one shown here.
