Jesus Was Born
Life Kids This Week
Week of December 11, 2016
This week, we continued our Christmas unit and celebrated the birth of Jesus. It was fitting that Jesus was born in a manger and that the first people to hear about His arrival were the shepherds in the fields. Shepherds were outcasts from society and by God announcing the birth of Jesus to them first, God was declaring that the Savior was for all types of people everywhere.
