Christmas Eve Children's Sermon
We have been anxiously waiting for this night for four and half weeks now! Are you so excited? Do you know who is being born tonight? JESUS! Yes! Jesus! A long time ago on a night just like this Jesus was born! And the angels in heaven were so excited they had to tell the shepherds who were watching their sheep to go see Jesus. The angels told the shepherds to go to Bethlehem to find in a manger a baby named Jesus wrapped in a blanket who was the born King of Kings. They followed a bright star to find the baby Jesus lying in a manger. Tonight at the end of our service we are each going to have a light to help us remember the star in the sky and to remember the light of Jesus. We are going to have special lights. I have gotten you all a special Christmas present. After our prayer I will give each of you a special glow stick to shake up and hold at the end of the service.
Dear God, thank you for sending us the Light in baby Jesus. Amen.
