It’s hard to believe it’s November already! Our CB Kids have had a busy fall. In September our JK to Grade five started a new curriculum teaching them about the ‘Life of Jesus’.
Beginning with his humble birth in a manger, our CB Kids have been learning that Jesus is a real person and how He can help them in their lives today. You may have seen our kids leaving Sunday school with manger crafts and glittery stars the past few weeks. It has been great to take our time learning about the Christmas story instead of rushing through it in December.
We also had our CB kids back to school night and our Superhero night. We learned that God is with us everywhere, even at school, and that He can also use us in super ways. We had lots of fun and look forward to our Ugly Sweater night on Thursday, November 29th. It will be a fun time of Christmas crafts, games and snacks.
Our Children’s Ministry has also started practicing for our Christmas presentation happening on December 9th. Even our little preschoolers have been working on a special poem. It’s always a busy start to pull out the costumes, choose the best poem and find the perfect song. In the end, it’s the message that is most important. Our children have been learning that presenting the story of Jesus’ birth allows others to hear the amazing story of our King’s birth and the incredible gift that it is.
The song that we chose this year is called ‘Baby King’ by Jason Gray, and our children have been busy learning all the words. Here is just a little part of it:
Come now you don't have to fear anymore
There's never been a king quite like this one before
He knows its not easy to let down your guard
That it might take a baby to open your heart
And tenderly pull your defenses apart
Ring every bell, Shout out the message, all hail the coming of Jesus
Lord of us all, small and defenseless, power comes swaddled in meakness
Don't be afraid, He came as a baby King.
I know this season of celebration and family will pass in the blink of an eye. Over the next several weeks we will all be in the thick of shopping, wrapping, baking, cleaning, and attending Christmas activities. I hope too that we can find the Baby King in all the holiday happenings.
