He's Coming Back!
w/c 4 December 2017
It is the first week of Advent and this assembly teaches that Jesus came to earth for the first time at Christmas and that he will come back in the future. Using the story of twins whose sibling is temporarily away from home, the children will understand that we are waiting for Jesus to return. The Gospel explains that, although we don’t know when Jesus will return, we should be ready for it.
“Be watchful! Be alert!” Mark 13:33
Key Point / Learning Objective:
Children will know that Jesus came to earth for the first time at Christmas, and that he will come back again in the future.
Children will be able to explain that waiting for Jesus to return is like waiting for a loved one to come home.
