Children’s Christmas Service Kits

2016 Children’s Christmas Kit

Welcome to our web page for our 2016 Advent and Christmas resources. This year’s children’s Christmas service kit is entitled From Heaven Above to Earth I Come, by Rebecca Kramer.

Lead your congregation to Bethlehem and welcome the newborn Savior into the world through this unique children’s Christmas service!

Based on the lyrics of the timeless Martin Luther hymn, From Heaven Above to Earth I Come tells the Christmas message as found in Luke chapter 2. Optional quotes from Luther help to herald Jesus’ arrival and offer a special Reformation connection. The service can also be easily adapted for large or small groups of children. The convenient kit includes all you’ll need—leader’s guide, copy master, hymn accompaniments, and more.

The 2016 children’s Christmas service kit contains the Leader’s Guide, plus a sample bulletin cover and a CD, which contains:

  • a PDF of the Leader’s Guide and sample bulletin cover
  • an RTF of the service copy master
  • image files of the logo and service banner
  • MIDI files of song accompaniments
  • WAV files of vocal and accompaniment recordings

  • “From Heaven Above to Earth I Come”
  • “On Christmas Night All Christians Sing”
