The Children’s Sermon
You’ll Need:
● Christmas decorations
Get Ready: Decorate the room with Christmas decorations.
Do This:
SAY: Christmas is coming soon. It’s easy to tell. We see the signs all around us.
(Point to Christmas decorations.) What signs have you seen? (Allow kids to answer.)
We see Christmas decorations on houses; we hear Christmas songs on the radio;
we see commercials on TV, and more. If we didn't have all of these things to
remind us, how could we tell that Christmas is coming? (Pause for responses.)
Two thousand years ago, there was no TV or radio announcing that a child would
be born and that He would be the Savior of the world. When Jesus was born, very
few people even knew about it. But it was an event that God had promised, and it
was foretold by prophets many years before. Many people had been looking
forward to the coming of the Savior, but they didn't know exactly when He was
coming.
We’re entering the season of Advent. Advent means "the coming of something very
important.” It is a period of time when we look forward to the celebration of Jesus’
birth at Christmas--and we also look forward to Jesus’ return.
Jesus promised to come again, and we look forward to it, just as people 2,000
years ago looked forward to the Savior being born. No one knows exactly when
Jesus will come back. It isn't marked on the calendar, but we’re watching and
waiting, expectantly.
As we prepare to celebrate the birthday of our Savior, let's also be sure we
prepare for His exciting return.

PRAY: Dear God, we thank You for this special time of year and its important
meaning to us. We praise You for keeping your promise to send a Savior who will
come back again. In Jesus’ name, amen.

ASK:
● If you were in the pilot’s position, would you have served bread or kept
looking up? Why?
● How can you serve others while you wait for Jesus’ return?

Cloud Prayers

You’ll Need:
● White paper - one per child
● Markers - one per child

Do This:
● Give each child a piece of paper and a marker.
● Ask kids to tear a cloud shape out of the paper.
● Have each kid write a prayer thanking God for something on his or her cloud.
● Invite kids to pray that prayer silently.
● Close in group prayer with children.

PRAY: Dear God, thank You for the promise that Jesus is coming again soon. Help
us to be found faithful when He returns. In Jesus’ name, amen.
