Tell about the Savior
Our Kids in the Kingdom Week continued Thursday with the Christmas story as shepherds came to visit the baby Jesus on the night of his birth. As they tended their sheep, the shepherds saw a sky filled with angels who told them that the Messiah—the one anointed by God to be their savior—had been born in Bethlehem. The shepherds were told that the baby they found wrapped in bands of cloth and lying in a manger (which means food trough) was the one. They went at once and found and worshipped Jesus. Then the shepherds excitedly went out to tell the news that the Savior had been born.
The theme for the day is Tell about a savior as the Shepherds didn't just come and see Jesus, but they went and told Bethlehem and all the surrounding area of the Messiah's birth.
