Unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord (Luke 2:11).
The birth of Jesus was a surprise to almost everyone. Many people were not ready for it.
To help you get ready to celebrate Jesus’ birthday with the families in your ministry, CTA has several resources available.
This year’s theme is A Night like No Other. The softcover book is a traditional retelling of the Christmas event from Luke 2. It focuses on God’s great love for us through the gift of His Son.
That night was unlike any other night in history, but it is still remembered and celebrated by people all over the world, even people who don’t really know what Christmas truly means.
In addition to the book, CTA has several FREE resources that are downloadable and ready to use.
- two versions of a children’s Christmas program—a preschool version and an elementary version, both of which are editable to help better serve your needs;
- special music including audio versions and sheet music;
- a set of four Advent devotions that go along with an Advent wreath activity kit (available for purchase);
- Socially Speaking—suggestions to use on social media;
- theme art and a bulletin cover;
- and more!
Christmas is exciting for many reasons. Help children to know that JESUS is the best and never-ending reason for our excitement. CTA would love to partner with you as you plan and prepare to celebrate the most special night of the year!
