Thanksgiving Tree

It's the New Year. One way to celebrate it is to look back and give thanks to the Lord for all He's done for us in the past year.

1. Activity

  • Give each kid a coloured paper (or sticker paper). Get them to trace their hand on it and:
    • Write their name on it
    • Write what they are thankful to Jesus for and share with the group
    • Cut out the hand print
    • Paste onto the "tree trunk" (which can be painted or printed onto a large cardboard

2. Lesson
  • Jesus said He is the vine and we are the branches. If we remain in Him and He in us, we will bear much fruit. Apart from Him, we can do nothing (John 15:5)
  • When we know we are a part of Jesus, when we rest in Him and trust Him, we will see His fruits and blessings flow through our lives.
  • In this new year, let's continue to rest in Jesus and give thanks for the many fruits He will produce in us!
