The birth of Jesus

· Hunt for Jesus (while twinkle)-children will look for the star that shows them where Jesus is. (location-CE building). Then they will come back and the story will begin. The star had to shine bright to show them where Jesus was. When we are at school, stores, ballgames, we can shine bright to show that Jesus lives inside of us and to show who Jesus is.
