Christmas Encounters for Kids and Families

Christmas is one of those events where you know it is expected that you as the Children's Ministry Lead will have something prepared for a Christmas service but when do you find the time to practice? I believe in having the kids experience God moments in the classroom so that when they get up on stage for the presentation they already know the parts so well not because they have memorized lines but because they have experienced it with their hearts. It is not a performance… this is presentation of what they have learned about Jesus in the last 6 weeks. The Kids Encounter (used on Sunday mornings) and the Family Encounter (used as a mid-week connection) will have the families learning together this Christmas.
