November is a great time to gather up all your songs that are filled with thanks. You can talk about how we use worship to tell God thank you for all He has done for us. Start a dialogue with your children and ask them what they are thankful for. Why can they sing and give thanks today? Scripture is a good source to show a thankful heart and to show how worship and thanksgiving go hand in hand.
December is for Christmas songs. Most songs can be easily sung all year, but this is not so with Christmas songs.These special songs are only used for a few weeks. Take advantage of this opportunity to make your music fresh by including Christmas music in class, even if it takes a little more planning and rehearsals. Try to mix the fun songs and the familiar songs. You can use some songs like “Jingle Bells” or “Frosty the Snowman.” But, be sure to sing songs like “Joy to the World” and“O Come All Ye Faithful” because of their Christmas message.
Read Luke 2:13-20 to your kids. The angels and the shepherds praised God! In this Christmas story there is a lot of worship happening. The greatest gift ever has been given to us. Our Savior was born to us. It is the best reason to sing and worship God. Use this Christmas season to illustrate worship in a different way than what you have been teaching all year. It is a good story.
Luke 2:19 says that Mary kept all these things in her heart. She pondered and remembered them over and over.
