Elementary, December 5: The Prophets Foretell the Coming of the King

Hi Journey Kids parents!

Jesus shouldn’t have come as a surprise. God had been promising to send a Savior for ages. He gave glimpses of what He intended to do through dozens of men and women over centuries. Isn’t that amazing? God didn’t leave us in the dark. He was always shining a light ahead – giving us shadows of what He intended to do. But, praise God, He did it in Jesus. He kept every one of His promises. That’s why we can trust in Him. He’s done what He promised in the past. We can be confident that He’ll keep His promises in the future.

When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. [You can access the videos here.] It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family.

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:

I don’t know where you need hope right now. What I do know is the God who promised to send a Rescuer is ready and willing to rescue you. Trust Him. He is good to His Word.
