Hello Parentz Express
Below is a brief summary, main verse, "Catch Phrase" and a few discussion questions you can use to reinforce what we're learning this Sunday. I hope this can be a meaningful tool for you to help your children apply what they learn in Kidz Express.
Presence means someone is with you or beside you. Like if I were going to call roll, if you’re here you would say, “Present!” So when I say God's gift of Jesus gives us His presence, I mean God's Gift of Jesus allows God to be with us all the time! But like any gift, we have to accept it. Not everyone does, but you can! You can choose to accept the gift of Jesus and make Him the leader your life! Jesus is God’s Christmas present to us. God’s Gift gives us His presence.
Matthew 1:23 NLT “…She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us.’”
God’s Gift gives us His Presence!
1. What’s the difference between the word presents and the word presence?
2. What things make it hard for you to believe God is with you all the time?
3. Share a time where you knew God was with you and helping you.
4. How does it make you feel to know God is with you all the time?
