What We're Teaching
WAIT FOR IT: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON ADVENT & CHRISTMAS
Who doesn’t love a board game? Waiting for the game to unfold is a part of the fun, but it can be frustrating if kids don’t know why they are playing or what they need to be a part of it. In, Wait for It, kids will learn how to watch for and put their hope in Jesus. Everyone will meet John, Mary, Simeon and Anna— people who waited for a Savior to change their lives. Kids will learn that everyone needs a Savior, that the Savior will change everything, that God will do impossible things, and that Jesus is the one they’ve been waiting for! Below you will find the parent guide for the next 4 weeks.

Tip of the Month
Think about someone who shaped your future because of their influence during your childhood years. Someone who made you who you are today. Seriously, do it. Right now. Got a name? Great. Now consider this. In a few years, what will your kid say you've instilled in them? And what voices (besides yours) are helping to shape them? If you're not sure, don't let this week go by without recruiting another trusted adult to help you influence your kid.
