Christian Tools AffirmationCelebrate the Gift of Jesus--Early Childhood and Elementary Christmas Services on CD-ROM
Celebrate the Gift of Jesus is a Christmas service for children and adults. Based on the verse Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift! (2 Corinthians 9:15 NKJV), two program components include both young children (ages 3 - 6) and elementary aged children in the service. Many of the components of the service can be practiced with individuals and/or classes weeks before a whole-group practice takes place. The three sections of the service include: "God's Gift Foretold", "The Gift Comes" and "Celebrate the Gift of Jesus." Little children, ages 3 to 6, will delight in telling the Good News of Jesus' birth through the songs and finger plays, while older children will enjoy Scripture readings, responses and songs included in this simple Christmas service.
The CD is compatible with both Macintosh and Windows operating systems. On the CD, you receive Word documents and PDF versions of the Director's Notes, Order of Service, plus other helpful documents. PowerPoint slides for Adult and Children Ministry Messages further strengthen the service. Song tracks for The Gift of Jesus include accompaniment and voices and accompaniment only.
