Jesus Is Born!

What is your favorite Christmas carol? Sing it!


The wait was over. God kept His promise! For thousands of years, God’s people had waited for the promised Savior. From God’s first promise to Adam and Eve to His covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to the new covenant He made with the exiles, God was faithful to His plan. He kept His chosen people safe in the desert, and brought them into the Promised Land. His people turned away. Still, God was faithful. Though He sent them into exile, He comforted them with His promise and brought them back again to their homeland. Hundreds of years passed. The Savior would come through this people—but Jesus would be for ALL people. Finally, the time had come. Jesus, the Savior, was born!

Opening Prayer

Heavenly Father, You sent Jesus to fulfill the promise You made to send a Savior. Help us to know and believe in Him. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

When Jesus Was Born Christmas Story

Talk about it

  • Why did God send Jesus to be born on earth?
  • Who told the shepherds Jesus was born?
  • What did the shepherds do after they worshiped baby Jesus?
  • Who can you tell about Jesus, our Savior?


God promised to send a Savior. Because we sin, we deserve to be punished and we are separated from God. God sent Jesus to pay the punishment for our sins, so we can one day live with Him forever in heaven!


The angels announced the good news that Jesus was born to the shepherds. After the shepherds came to see Jesus, they told everyone what they had seen and heard!


How will you share the great news that Jesus is our Savior?

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.

Closing Prayer

Dear Jesus, thank You for coming at Christmas as a humble, human baby to be our Savior and King. Help us to share that wonderful good news with everyone! In Your name we pray. Amen
