The very first Christmas looked a lot different than the one we will experience over the next few weeks. It was a string of God planned events that would come together to create a wonder-filled story that would be told again and again and again. God sent His Son to earth in the form of a human baby who grew to be a someone like no other. Ultimately, He gave His life for us.
This month, we celebrate the beautiful gift of Jesus. We want preschoolers to say again and again that, ‘God gave us Jesus.’ We want it to live deep within their hearts so they grow to trust that God loves them with a love so great that He gave them His one and only Son, Jesus, to be their friend forever.
May we all pause under our own starry, starry night this year and remember the wonder of what we are celebrating. God gave us Jesus.
The Welcome Center and Hallway
It’s time to celebrate Christmas! Yay! Some churches will choose to go with their traditional Christmas decorations, which is great! Be sure to add lots of stars hanging from the ceiling and decorating your Christmas trees.
Another option is decorating with the purples and yellows from the theme art. Use plastic tablecloths to create bunting. Cut large yellow and white stars from poster board to hang on the wall.
Cover your welcome table with a tablecoth that matches your decor. Add a small Christmas tree with star ornaments. Fill your clear pen jars with star tinsel.
