Why The Story of Jesus' Birth Still Matters
The Christmas story isn't just about the birth of a baby. It's about the arrival of the Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace promised in the book of Isaiah. In Christmas Unwrapped 4-Week Children's Ministry Curriculum, kids will explore the Christmas story and discover why “Jesus matters to me.”
Christmas Unwrapped Children's Ministry Curriculum Lesson Overview
“And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. ” Isaiah 9:6b (NIV)
Scripture: Isaiah 9:6-7, A Child Is Born & Matthew 1:18-23, Immanuel
A counselor is someone who you can turn to for advice, for a shoulder to lean on, for help with your problems. A counselor is there for you. Jesus is our wonderful counselor; he is there for us. Jesus is God with us.
Objective: Kids will learn they can go to Jesus with any challenge because he is their Wonderful Counselor.
Scripture: Luke 1:26-38, The Angel Visits Mary
When the angel told Mary that she would give birth to Jesus, she thought that it couldn't be possible. But the angel reminded her “nothing is impossible with God.” When we face hard times or confusing things, we can turn to Jesus. Jesus is our Mighty God; nothing is impossible for him.
Objective: Kids will learn they can trust in Jesus because he is a Mighty God.
Scripture: Matthew 2:1-16, The Magi and King Herod
When something is everlasting, it means that it will never end. When King Herod learned that Jesus had been born, he knew his kingdom was coming to an end, so he tried to stop Jesus. Jesus loves us like a good father, and we can take comfort knowing that Jesus’ love and Jesus’ kingdom will never end.
Objective: Kids will learn they can put their hope in Jesus because he is their Everlasting Father.
Prince of Peace
Scripture: Luke 2:1-20, The Shepherds
When the angels told the shepherds that Jesus had been born, they said that He would bring peace. Even though we will have hard times, and sad times, if we bring our troubles and worries to God, He will bring us peace.
Objective: Kids will learn they can find rest in Jesus because he is their Prince of Peace.

- Memory Verse - so that you can make sure kids are getting Scripture in their minds and hearts every single week and you can feel like each lesson was a success even when it seems like 90% of your lesson time is spent saying things like "calm down", "let's be quiet", "hands to yourself!"
- Skit or Puppet Show - so you have a way to easily connect the lesson with your hands-on and visual learners. No drama team? No problem! Just hand the script to the kids. They'll have a blast and think you're the coolest.
- Craft Activity - so you can give kids a physical reminder of the Bible lesson (and give yourself an activity to keep them busy until mom and dad come back!)

Just kidding, this is a great way for you to build deeper relationships with your kiddos after each lesson, which means you're going to care about them so much you'll cry like a baby when they graduate and go to middle school :(
- More! - Yes, there is even more than all of that so that you can easily put together the perfect lesson for your ministry each weekend, which means no more agonizing over how to adjust complicated lesson plans.
