Story Focus: For Christmas weekend, we continue the story in Luke 2:8-20. Jesus was born, and it was now time to announce it to the world. Instead of heading to the palaces and mansions, God’s angels visited the shepherds and announced Jesus’ birth! Christmas reminds us that God’s love isn’t just for the people who think they have it all together. Jesus came to show God’s love to everyone!

Bottom Line: God’s love is for everyone. This story reminds us that Jesus didn’t just come for the powerful or most important people. Jesus came to show everyone that they can be part of what God is doing in the world. We pray that this Christmas will be a time for kids to experience God’s love and put their faith in Jesus.

Key Question: How can you share God’s love this Christmas? On Christmas weekend, it can be too easy to forget that Christmas isn’t all about us. We hope to remind preteens that Christmas is ultimately about God’s love for us that allowed Jesus, God’s only Son, to come to earth and rescue us from the consequences of sin. When we think about Christmas like that, we can discover that we should be sharing that same love with others.
