Parent Newsletter

What's happening this month in Children's Ministry

This is a monthly resource to help parents make the most of all that our Children’s Ministry has to offer your family. We have broken it down into four sections to give you everything from big picture inspiration to a detailed overview of what we’re teaching in our Children’s environments. Sign up at the bottom of your screen to receive the Parent Newsletter email each month!

The Big Picture

Enjoying the Greatest Gift

Have you ever lost a Christmas present?   Sometimes in the chaos of Christmas morning, one small package may get shoved to the back of the tree and forgotten. Other times it may be a gift you’ve hidden in a closet or under a bed.

Whatever the case, it’s always exciting to find that missing present.  Just when you thought Christmas was over, there’s more gift to enjoy.

Of course, we all know that Christmas isn’t about the gifts under the tree, but the gift in the manger.  Yet, in the hustle and bustle of holidays with children, it’s easy to overlook the greatest gift. Sometimes busyness crowds out Bethlehem.  

That’s where we’d like to help.  In December we will have some special opportunities to help even the busiest of families focus on Jesus.  

Not only will be teaching through the Christmas story on Sundays in all environments, but we will be sharing Bible verses, discussion starters and other ways for you to build on what your kids are learning on social media throughout the week.  You can follow us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

Also, on Sunday, December 16th, we will be hosting our Christmas Live event for all of our elementary students in our Drive-In and Backlot environments.  You can read more about that in this month’s “Behind-the-Scenes” section.

At Christmas Live we will be handing out a family devotional ornament to give you a simple activity to do at home the final week before Christmas.  You can check out this month’s “Featured Resource” to download a digital copy of the activity if you want to get an early start.

Finally, we will be giving away a copy of Toby Mac’s Light of Christmas album to provide families with some fun holiday tunes to keep Jesus in the middle of your celebration.  Just email us at childrens@southland.church by noon on Monday, December 10th, to enter for a chance to win your free download.  You can put “free music” in the subject line.

Congratulations to Katie Miller, Tiffany Clonch, Jana Penner for winning last month’s free book How to Raise Selfless Kids In a Self-Centered World.  

From all of us in Children’s Ministry, we pray your family will have a wonderful Christmas enjoying Jesus together.  

Series Overview

Preschool

In this series, preschoolers will learn the good news of Christmas and why we celebrate this exciting holiday each year. Each week your child gets to visit Rudy the Reindeer at his radio station to learn the Christmas story. It’s a month-long birthday party for Jesus with a surprise at the end!


 

Elementary

What is the greatest gift you have ever received?  This Christmas season your child will uncover how we can give to others God’s way.  Together we will celebrate the ultimate gift that God gave us when He showed us the greatest example of compassion the world has ever seen.

Behind-the-Scenes

Bringing the Bethlehem Story to Life

For the past several months we have been planning a special Christmas experience for our elementary kids called Christmas Live.  Our goal for Christmas Live is to bring the Bethlehem story to life in a way our kids will never forget. Whether a child is hearing the Christmas story for the very first time or for the hundredth time, we want to fill them with wonder and awe over the amazing gift in the manger.  

Christmas Live is like a regular weekend Children’s program on steroids with live vocals, drama, and fun, creative elements all designed to lead our kids to Jesus.  

As you can imagine, a worship service like this takes time to pull together. We began writing the script and planning the service elements back in September. We selected music to find just the right opening song to bring kids to their feet. Then, we had to figure out how we were going to stage a live drama in our Children’s environments of various shapes and sizes across campuses.  

Our campus teams have been busy recruiting singers and actors and rehearsing to get ready for the big day.  Meanwhile, our Central Support team has been working on props, small group supplies, and a special family take-home activity to help the kids remember the Christmas story long after Christmas Live is a wrap.  

It’s been like Santa’s workshop around here, and we have loved every minute of it because more than anything else, we want your child to encounter Jesus this Christmas season!

Christmas Live will be held in the Drive-In and Backlot environments on Sunday, December 16 in the 9:30 and 11:15 services.  Make sure your child doesn’t miss this unforgettable experience, and since you’re coming anyway, this would be a great weekend to bring a friend.
