The Greatest Gift

God's Gift

OPENING WORSHIP

Reading
The opening reading is John 3:16-17 

"For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him."

Song
If you don’t know the words, or you can’t sing (like in churches that are open during this time) then worshipping God using your body, like in an action song, is a great way to praise the Lord.

Let’s celebrate God’s wonderful gift of life through his son, Jesus with our opening song,

Come on and Celebrate - https://youtu.be/-lRvDAajdGk
(This is another song where Mike and I had to do the actions)

  2. A piece of Christmas wrapping paper
  3. Bow for decoration - optional
  4. Ribbon for hanging
  5. Print off these pictures.pdf or draw your own Nativity pictures on squares of paper approximately 8x8cm

Instructions

  1. Cover your card in wrapping paper.
  2. On one side you may want to stick a bow or piece of ribbon to make it look more like a present.
  3. Stick a picture of the nativity or Jesus on the other side.
  4. Make a hole in the top and thread the ribbon through. Or stick the ribbon to the top of the card.
  5. Hang your decoration on the tree or give it to someone as a gift.
