What are angels, and what do they have to do with us? This Christmas Sunday School lesson reviews how God sent angels to announce the birth of Christ. When Mary and Joseph (and the shepherds) encountered these holy messengers, they were surprised, but trusted what they were told. Their lives were changed in unexpected ways, but God’s plans for them were wonderful! The angels we see in the Bible are quite different from our usual idea of what angels “should” be like, just as God’s blueprints for our lives are often different from what we’d plan or expect. Fortunately, we can know that God is trustworthy, and will bless us when we hope in Him!

We often think that we are in control of our own lives, or we hope that somehow, we can manage things. God reminds us that His ways and plans are bigger and better than ours, and that is a blessing! We know we can trust in His Word and promises, because He sent Jesus to be our savior, and He transforms our lives in great ways!

Bible Passage: Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 1:26-33; 2:8-14

          Great lesson

          This lesson prompted the children to discuss other events in the Bible and ask many questions. WE had a great discussion

          Great Lesson!

          Thank you for the amazing lesson. The best part were the videos explaining the crafts. Some of the teachers don't always feel crafty but the videos truly help see how the craft should look when finished.


          Thank you

          Good, (Great) News

          The lesson on Angel bringing the Great News of the birth of Jesus is a profound message for all. Not only does it impact the lives of children to realize that God sent His angels to earth to notify the special people about God's plan for them all, but it also reminds the adults that God always can be trusted to fulfill His promises. This is a magical time of the year for children and all people alike so angels coming to earth is a trusted, sincere way for people to believe. They can believe in our God. The story portrayed in this segment lesson by Sunday School Works, is amazingly told and presented.

          Great Resource

          I love the background information given on the topic and the fantastic ideas. I find with my group of children they need active participation in the storytelling and not too much talking. After being a school teacher for 30+ years I don't use worksheets during the Kid's church session but I find them great to send home.
