Church at Home Guide
Staying home this weekend? Here’s everything you need to have a Kid-O-Deo or Elevate experience wherever you are. Just watch the video with your kids and follow the Church at Home guide.
➜Talk About It:
How did the wise men find Jesus? (They followed a star.)
What are some things we can "give" for Jesus? (Our time, the things we're good at, or we can donate things we have)
➜Try This at Home:
As a family, talk about ideas of something you can give this Christmas season. Could you buy a gift for a child in need, bring food to a food shelf, or write a card to someone who is lonely? Pick one of your ideas and try it this week!
The wise men gave gifts to Jesus because they believed he was God's Son. We can give Jesus our best, too. We can use the things we're good at and the things we have to share his love, joy, peace, and kindness with others.

Look up and read Hebrews 13:6. This verse tells us that God helps us, so we have nothing to fear.
➜Talk about these questions!
If you could travel anywhere in the world for this next week, where would you go?
When have you faced something “unknown”? What happened?
Is there anything coming up that you’re not sure about, or even that makes you feel afraid?
➜Try it out!
Find someone to try this out with. Take turns putting things into a bag or a box so the other person can't see them. Then have the other person try to tell what is in the bag or box only by feeling it with their hands. Then have them put something in the bag or box, and you try to guess what it is.
➜The Point: The wise men followed Jesus, even when they didn’t know where they were going. They trusted God completely. Jesus can lead us, too, whether we think we know exactly what to do next or have no idea what to do. Whatever unknown we face, Jesus is with us.
