Christmas Song 2012

Over the next few Sundays, your child is practicing their special Christmas song they will perform on stage Sunday, Dec. 16th. As a gift to Jesus, they will offer the best present they can give - their beautiful voices in worship!

If your last name begins with the letter A-M, please attend the 9:15 service. Your child needs to arrive to their classroom at 9:00 a.m.

If your last name begins with the letter N-Z, please attend the 10:45 service. Your child needs to arrive to their classroom at 10:30 a.m.

(It is so important that your children arrive on time so they can line up in their spots to go on stage. We don't want any late comers to miss out!)

Since we only have a few more Sundays to practice, I encourage you to go over the song with your child throughout the week. The kids are going to ECHO each line. Click here for a video with the motions. Below, you'll find the lyrics:

In a stable 
In a manger
Lies a baby
A baby boy
His name is Jesus
Born at Christmas
He is God's gift
Of great joy.
Baby Jesus
Sent down to us.
Ohhh, Jesus
Baby Jesus
We are thankful for your birth.

Thanks! Happy practicing!
