3 great reasons why we want to go back to school after the holidays
A series of 3 kids slots helping children get excited about going back to school after the summer holidays. The series gives 3 compelling reasons why christian children have more reasons to look forward to going back to school than anyone else:
We go to school with Jesus Christ
We go to school to learn about God’s world
We go to school for Jesus
We’ve included discussion questions for families with each talk.
A christmas talk - long version
‘A Christmas all age talk on Luke 2: 8-18. It shows how the first Christmas was the ultimate multi sensory experience! It will take about 20 minutes to deliver and is designed to be split into 4 parts to scatter throughout an all age carol service to cater for little concentration spans.’
Christmas is an attack on the senses. It is those familiar smells, sights and sounds that bring us rushing back to so many memories. That first Christmas, we hear the ear drum bursting choir of angels, we are blinded by the army of angels, we smell the stable as we see the screaming baby, we hear the shepherds as they run through the streets of Bethlehem telling anyone who listen that their Saviour has been born. Nothing at that first Christmas was muted. Everything was turned up to 11.
Our nativity script is for an all age service that wants to place the children at the front, telling us the story.
In this series of 7 short all age talks children and their families learn that:
God is Holy, God is three persons, God is everywhere, God is forever, God is in charge, God is love.
Luke 2:8-12, John 3:16;1:14, Isaiah 1:18, Philippians 2:8 & Isaiah 9:6
