This series is meant to teach the kids about the true meaning of Christmas—the birth of our Savior, Jesus! Our hope is that the kids will walk away knowing that we can trust in God’s plan, Jesus was born to be our Savior, anyone can worship Jesus, and God promises to guide us.
During this series, the kids will be joining the Skuppets and their new friend, Jack, as they search for snow in a fun Christmas musical called, A Very Skuppet Christmas! Along the way, they will meet new Skuppets and learn that Christmas is so much more important than snow. Each episode will tie in with the weekly teaching objective to help reinforce key points of the Christmas story. There is also a teaching video called, Get it? Got it! Good!, that goes along with this that clearly connects the Big Idea to the Bible story.
