Read Together

Read Matthew 2: 1-2 . Open your Bible together or use the scripture below.

Discuss Together

People were glad that Jesus was born.  Mary and Joseph loved their little baby.  Happy shepherds came to see him the very night he was born.  And in the sky, a bright star was leading other people on a journey from a faraway land, to see Jesus, too.  The star was one of the biggest and brightest stars ever seen before!  For many years, Wise Men had studied stars in the sky.  When they saw this star, they knew that it was a sign from God to them that a king had been born.  “Let us go to see this new king”, the Wise Men said.  So they began a long journey and followed the star day after day, until the star finally led them to Bethlehem.

What did the wise men see and ask?  

Do Together

  • Bundle up and go outside after nightfall. Look at the stars— those are the same stars the shepherds saw in the sky the night Jesus was born. Take turns asking each other questions.  

The Visit of the Wise Men

Matthew 2:1-2

Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men[a] from the east came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw his star when it rose[b] and have come to worship him.”

Countdown to Christmas – Day 13

{12 Days Until Christmas}

Read Together

Review Luke 2: 8-20 . Open your Bible together .

Discuss Together

Treasure means to keep and value something, to store it away for future use. Ponder, to think about and reflect on. Treasuring and pondering are things we don’t do enough of. They give us time to think about things and let God, the Father, sprinkle His understanding over us. Even in a barn with a newborn baby, and shepherds popping in unexpectedly to interrupt the evening with their tales of armies of angels, Mary took some quiet time to treasure and ponder the day’s events.

Do Together

  • Come to Kids Worship today at 10:00 or 12:15 for a fun Nativity Escape Room.

Why did Jesus come? What is the Good News? 

When you see something amazing, you want to tell others all about it! Maybe you saw a beautiful sunset of orange and pink, or maybe it started to snow and you wanted to call a friend and tell him. When something wonderful happens to you, you want to tell others the good news! Maybe you got a new puppy or made a new friend at school. That is how the shepherds felt after they saw Baby Jesus. The men were so happy. They had heard the angels singing, they had just seen a wonderful baby, lying in a manger in a stable, just as the angels had told them. The shepherds were thankful to God for everything they had seen and heard. They were thankful to be a part of this wonderful night. As they went back to work, they told everyone they saw the good news that Baby Jesus was born.

Do Together

  • As a family, watch the movie The Star or any other Christmas movie together.

Luke 2: 18-20

18 And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart. 20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.
