We’re inviting families to join together in celebrating Advent in the coming weeks. Solid Rock Kids will create Christmas ornaments, sing songs, and learn memory verses as we explore hope, peace, joy, and love. Each week, we’ll provide a brief overview of the kids’ lesson and activities. We encourage families to take time to talk about and reflect upon these stories, songs, and scriptures at home throughout the week.
Series: Advent: Wonders of His Love
Lesson: Hope: God with us
Song: O Come O Come Emmanuel (Rain for Roots)
Summary: God provided hope for his people by speaking to them through the prophets. Hundreds of years before Jesus was even born, God used the prophet Isaiah to comfort His people and tell them about Jesus, their Savior.
Activity: Scroll ornament with memory verse
Memory Verse: “For a child has been born—for us! The gift of a son—for us! (MSG)
Scripture: Isaiah 9 (MSG)
For a child has been born—for us!
the gift of a son—for us!
He’ll take over the running of the world.
His names will be: Amazing Counselor,
Prince of Wholeness.
His ruling authority will grow,
and there’ll be no limits to the wholeness he brings.
He’ll rule from the historic David throne
over that promised kingdom.
He’ll put that kingdom on a firm footing
and keep it going
With fair dealing and right living,
beginning now and lasting always.
The zeal of God-of-the-Angel-Armies
will do all this
