DECEMBER 2: THE BIRTH OF CHRIST, Luke 2:11-14
After reading Luke 2:11-14, youth will watch the movie “Star” and discuss the scripture and the movie. The movie offers a retelling of the nativity as seen from the animal’s point of view. The idea of the nativity story seen through the eyes of the animals is inspiration for both children and adults.
DECEMBER 9: THE BIRTH OF CHRIST, Matthew 1:18-23
This Sunday school lesson will teach the youth that Mary gave birth to a son that will save us from ourselves and that he will always be with us. Also, youth will watch the TV episode of Black-ish called “Stuff” (2015). It is about the commercialization of Christmas.
