This Christmas, help your students grow their picture of who Jesus is. Through these 5 Christmas lessons, children will not only see Jesus as the baby in the manger but will get a full picture of the person of Jesus Christ. They'll wait with anticipation after hearing the prophecies of Jesus' birth, they'll marvel as those prophecies are fulfilled in Jesus and then will see how Jesus lived during His time on earth; being fully God and fully man.
These 5 lessons are best taught in the 3 weeks leading up to Christmas and the 2 weeks after Christmas. "Who is Jesus?" is part of a year-long series called "Big Truths for Young Hearts" and these lessons are found in unit 2 of the series.
“Big Truths for Young Hearts” is a 52-week lesson series based on the book ‘Big Truths for Young Hearts’ by Bruce Ware. In this book, Dr. Ware unpacks the riches of God’s word in a systematic way designed to help kids to grasp the big picture of who God is and all He desires us to know through His Word.
This year-long curriculum series takes the concepts, or the BIG TRUTHS, presented in the book and provides teachers, parents, and churches with all the resources they need to proclaim those truths to the children in their lives. The curriculum units follow the chapters in Dr. Ware’s book.

Our children's pastor retired and I offered to help until a new one could be found. Needed material and found your site. The PDF is perfect. It has everything needed to teach S.S. including lesson plans. The price was so reasonable. We are a small church so I needed something good and affordable. Thank You
Thank you for keeping the cost down on your materials. I know these things can be costly. I love that your lessons are flexible for different age groups. Our children's pastor stepped down, and I am volunteering to help until a new one can be found and love the idea of everything in one place. Well done, be blessed, and thank you again.
