Christmas is such a great time for children’s ministries. You can teach kids who Jesus is, why He came and what it means to follow Him. It’s important to focus on sharing the true meaning of Christmas.
That being said, it’s also a great time to connect with the kids through Christmas jokes. Kids love jokes. You can use these with one kid before service, in a large group or small group.
And often at Christmas, churches will have guests. It’s also when all the CEO’s show up (Christmas-Easter-Only). These kids and families are also a group you want to engage with while they are at your service. If the kids have a great experience, they will bug mom and dad to bring them more often.
Have fun using some of these jokes this Christmas season to connect with kids. All it takes is one funny joke to bring down the wall a child may have put up. Once that wall is down and they’ve decided to engage with you, you can share God’s Word with them heart to heart. Start with a joke that gets kids to laugh and helps them connect with you. Which means you will have a great opportunity to share the true meaning of Christmas.
