Product Description

The Christmas Shoppe is an event where your Children's Ministry children from Preschool to 6th Grade will hear the Christmas story, create Christmas gifts, and prepare their hearts to celebrate the birth of Jesus. The gifts created can be sold to support a missions or given as gifts. In six "departments" or "shops", children hear part of the Christmas story and make items for sale or gift-giving (Angel, Manger, Candy Cane, Star, Card and Bakery.) Each shop's craft activity offers easy, medium and advanced levels of creative difficulty to match all age-groups.
Choose a program format that best fits your church's needs:
1. A large one-day event from 9:00am - 3:00pm that culminates in a closing worship service and sale of the crafts for missions support.
2. A weekend event on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning with children involved with or leading the worship service.
3. A four-week Advent study in Children's Ministry on Sundays, mid-week services or kid's club group. Content includes lighting of the Advent Wreath for use each week.
An enclosed CD-Rom provides music, PowerPoints, Bible story scripts, scripts for use during worship, and patterns for crafts. (Note: Craft patterns are also in reproducible format in the book.)
