Story: "Simeon and Anna" | Spark Story Bible, pg. 226

Ask (from the story): If you were thanking God for Jesus, what would you say?

Lesson Video | Listening to God

Ask: Tell me about a time when you had someone coming to your house and you were really excited for them to arrive. . .

Has it ever happened that someone you were excited to see came a bit late? . . . How did it feel to wait? . . . How did it feel when they finally arrived?

Say: Anna and Simeon were excitedly waiting for Jesus. They were very old, so they were waiting their whole lives! But then Jesus came and they were very excited because they knew that God had kept His promise to send a Savior and they knew that Jesus would be the promised Savior!

Song: "Go Tell It on the Mountains" (with hand motions)

Activity Sheets or Play

After the song, hand out the activity sheets. Younger children are welcome to play with the Duplos (encourage them to play out a story that fits with the lesson).

End with the Lord's Prayer when the Usher comes to let you know the prayers have started.
