Read Together

An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone over them. They were terribly afraid. Luke 2:9

Discuss Together

One minute the shepherds were still and talking quietly, under the blackness of the sky. The next moment, the hillside was ablaze with light, overwhelmingly bright, and booming with an angel’s voice. The shepherds looked up. They had never seen an angel before. They were terrified! They did not know what to think or do!

Do Together

  • The angel came to the shepherds at night. Take a walk tonight with your family. Look at the Christmas lights around your neighborhood. Talk about the angel, the shepherds, and things your family most enjoys about Christmas.
  • Have a family Christmas game night. Play Charades using animals, people, and places from the Christmas story (angel, sheep, baby Jesus). Create Nativity Christmas Bingo Cards at Include words or pictures from the Christmas story on the card.

Pray Together

We pray we will be still and know He is God. Psalm 46:10
