Welcome! We are Hope Kids, where kids experience the awesomeness of God and gather in a setting designed just for them and meet new friends! The mission of Hope Kids is to walk alongside families in their faith walk, equipping children with knowledge of the word, confidence in their faith, and excitement to share the good news of Jesus with others.
This week we are beginning Advent. Advent is a time we spend each year preparing our hearts for the birth of Jesus and celebrating Christmas! We are so thankful that God decided to send his son Jesus as a baby. We want to be ready to celebrate!
This week, we are thinking and talking about hope. In the Old Testament, the Israelites were told about a Messiah that would come to them. But they had to wait 400 years from the last prophet in the Old Testament until the time of Jesus. They had to hope that their savior was coming.
Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (NIV).
This was written at a time that the Israelites did not have a lot of hope. God was reminding them that he had a plan for them and encouraging them to remember His plans.
After Jesus died on the cross, we can have hope that we can be saved and have a relationship with God and go to heaven!
Pray: God, thank you for giving us hope by sending your Son Jesus as a baby. Thank you for sending him to this earth to live as fully man and fully God and to give us hope for our futures. Remind us of this hope as we go about our week. Amen!
