Welcome to Kids Church @ Home
Today is the beginning of Advent.
- Advent is the season when we prepare for the coming of Jesus: both as a baby born in Bethlehem and for his future coming.
- If you watched today's church service with your family you will have seen that the church colour has changed to purple.
- Advent is the first season of the church year. It begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas and lasts for four weeks. It finishes on Christmas eve.
- Each Sunday during Advent a candle is lit on the Advent wreath. Today's lit candle is known as the Prophecy Candle or the candle of Hope.
Throughout the Old Testament there are many prophecies about Jesus. Today we will look at two prophets who told about the coming of Jesus: Isaiah and Micah.
- Isaiah 9:6 (colouring) - if you print 2 copies you can stick them back-to-back to make Christmas ornaments. These words for Jesus come from Isaiah's prophecy of Jesus coming. You can read this prophecy in Isaiah 9:6.
- word search
For Advent we will have a new memory verse to learn. Can you remember it for next week?
"God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who has faith in him will have eternal life."John 3:16
Today I am giving you the words to a song that you can sing to the tune of "Jingle Bells".
