The Great ADVENTure – Wise Men

The Great ADVENTure – a collection of ideas for families to use during the Advent Season

Today’s theme:  Wise Men still seek Him


Matthew 2: 1 – 2  After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” (NIV)


Sing, “We three Kings” song

Lyrics here.
