the christmas family tree
LINEAGE: a lame word for an awesome thing.
our plan for this christmas season…
we wanted to tell the Christmas story… but we also had these crucial old testament and new testament stories we wanted to tell… and we realized they were all people in the line of Christ…
wonderful! we are teaching through the lineage of christ… God…. to Jesus … to You.
By the end of the year, our kids will see how all of these Bible heroes are connected, even to them, if they believe in Jesus. Just look at what we get to learn.
11/11 – Noah: Obedience will save your life.
11/18 – Abraham/Sarah/Isaac/Ishmael: God has a better plan than ours
11/25 – Rahab/boaz/ruth- God has already rescued us
12/2 – Jesse/David/Solomon – God’s cares about what is in your heart.
12/9 – Uzziah – Pride will take you down
12/16 – Josiah – You’re never too young to do what’s right.
12/23 – Mary & Joseph – God will use you for his miracles.
This tree will be in each treehouse. The names that are in white will be covered, and each week as we get closer to Jesus they will be revealed. Can’t wait to tell them how these are their ancestors, too.
i designed this, so i would be happy to send these files to anyone that wants to print them out, use them with their kids.
shout out to susie hawkins for telling me to do the lineage my way…
