Dec. 31: Happy New Year – Church is Closed

Jan. 1:  We Can Give Gifts to Jesus

This Weekend in MC Park, in Sunday School and Elementary Worship, your child will learn about the story of the Magi.

Wise Men Find Jesus

You can review the story in Matthew 2:1-12. A great memory verse for your family this week is Psalm 100:5a – “For the Lord Is good and His love endures forever”

Questions for review with your child:

1.    What kinds of gifts do you think Jesus would like to get from us?
2.    If you could give Jesus any gift, what would it be?
3.    What do you think Jesus would say if you gave him that gift?
4.    How does it make you feel to give gifts to others?
5.    Why do you think the wise men gave gifts to Jesus?
6.    What gifts that don’t cost any money can you give to others?
7.    How is showing kindness and honor to someone a way of giving a gift to Jesus?
8.    How do you think Jesus feels when we’re kind to people?
9.    How do you think Jesus feels when we’re not kind to others?
10. What does it mean to love Jesus with our whole heart?


In Worship and Wonder now through Jan. 15, every class (preschoolers on Sat. night, 3s-2nd graders at 9 a.m. Sunday; 3s, 4s and Ks at 11 a.m. Sunday) will be studying the same lesson. This week's lesson:

The Boy Jesus in the Temple

Verses for this lesson: Luke 2:41-52

Questions to wonder about with your child:

1.    I wonder how Jesus felt when he was finally old enough to go to the Temple all by himself?
2.    I wonder how Mary and Joseph felt when they couldn’t find Jesus?
3.    I wonder why Jesus was surprised when his parent didn’t know where he was?
4.    I wonder what Jesus really meant when he called this his Father’s house?
