Title: Searching for the Great Treasure
Verse: Isaiah 9:6
Object: Pirate costume and telescope
Message: Acting like a pirate, enter the sanctuary with the telescope, looking for a treasure. Ask the children if they have the treasure.
Focus the telescope on the Advent Wreath. Talk about getting ready for Christmas, where the Great Treasure is revealed.
Incorporate the children into the conversation on who God sent as the “Great Treasure” (Jesus).
Keep the “pirate” persona up during the message.
Prayer: God, help us to find the “Great Treasure” of your Son Jesus. Be with us as we share your love with others. Amen.
