John 3:16-18

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.


Joy To The World

Joy to the World, the Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing.

Joy to the World, the Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy.

No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make His blessings flow
Far as the curse is found,
Far as the curse is found,
Far as, far as, the curse is found.

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders, of His love.


Ah, John 3:16. The first verse many kids memorize. But that’s what Christmas is about, right? God loving us so much He sent His Son. Even the secular world equates Christmas at least partially with love or at least spending time with loved ones.

Let’s make a handprint heart.

Print out this page on white cardstock, one for each of your children. You can also skip the printing and write your own caption on your cardstock.

Paint your child’s hands red (one at a time to prevent too much mess) and press them on the cardstock one at a time.

Have them keep their fingers together and pointed down to the words, but in the middle of the page. The fingers of the handprints will overlap to form a heart.

Let it dry. You can trace a heart around the handprints if they don’t look enough like a heart on their own.

Hang it up for all to see!
