Dec. 3 & 4: We Can Help Others Meet Jesus

This Weekend in MC Park, in Sunday School (4s through 5th) and Elementary Worship, your child will learn about the story of John the Baptist.

John the Baptist Prepares the Way for Jesus

You can review the story in Mark 1:1-8. A great memory verse for your family this week is Psalm 51:10a—“Create in me a pure heart, O God”

Questions for review with your child:

2.    Why do you think John the Baptist was supposed to “make straight paths” for Jesus?
3.    How can we “make straight paths” for Jesus, too?
4.    Who are two people you’d like to help meet Jesus?
5.    Why do you think God wants us to tell others about his Son, Jesus?
6.    Why does everyone need Jesus in his or her life?
7.    Why should the world be joyful about Jesus coming?
8.    Why is a joyful attitude so important when we are trying to tell others about Jesus?
9.    How can we get ready for Jesus?
10. How can we help others get ready for Jesus?
