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. Each week the kids will watch a Christmas short film that teaches our Big Idea and links it directly to the Christmas story.
