An Angel Visits Mary- Luke 1:26-56
TALK ABOUT IT
- What was your favorite part of the passage you just read?
- Have you learned anything about God that surprises you?
- What message did the angels give to Mary?
- How did Mary respond to their message?
- Our story teaches us that nothing is impossible with God. How does that make you feel?
Gather your family and tell them you have a message to give them.
Say: I have a message for you: “You will walk through a piece of paper.” How can you make the message come true?
Give them a few minutes to brainstorm.
- Does the message you received seem possible or impossible? Why?
- How is the message I said—“You will walk through a piece of paper”—like the message the angel gave to Mary?
The angel’s message seemed impossible. Not only would Mary have a baby, but the baby would also be God’s Son who’d rule like a king forever. What?! Mary didn’t laugh or say the angel was being ridiculous, but she did ask a question: “How can this be possible?”
Ask: Would you like to ask me how walking through a piece of paper could be possible?
Invite kids’ questions, and then distribute an “Impossible Possible” handout and scissors.
Impossible paper instructions:
- Have kids fold the “Impossible Possible” handouts in half vertically (like a hot dog bun).
- Have kids start at the fold and follow the lines to cut six straight cuts across the paper.
- Have kids then start from the open edge of the paper and follow the lines to make five cuts in the opposite direction, between the original six cuts.
- Have kids cut the middle crease but not cut the top and bottom.
- Invite pairs to gently open their papers so the hole stretches open. Have partners hold their papers so the hole stretches wide without ripping. Each partner should be able to walk through the hole. Have a few extra precut papers on hand, just in case one accidentally tears.
- Collect the extra pieces of paper, and have kids give each other high-fives and then return to their seats.
Say: I answered your question; now let’s find out how the angel answered Mary’s question.
Read Luke 1:35-38.
