This week in Elementary, the kids joined the hosts for another episode of Spin It to Win It! They heard Mary tell the story of an angel telling her and Joseph about the good news of Jesus coming to earth, heard some musical instruments as they played "Hear It Do It Spin It to Win It," got a new high score in the dancing game, and learned, "I Have Heard the Good News!" 

Need To Know: "I Have Heard The Good News!" 

Christ Connection: "Therefore the Lord Himself willl give you a sign: the virgin will conceive, have a son, and name him Immanuel" (Isaiah 7:14). The baby Jesus fulfilled Isaiah's prophecy, as well as other prophecies of the coming Savior throughout the Old Testament. Through His life, death, and resurrection, Jesus fulfilled God's plan of redemption that God planned from the beginning of the world.

Bible Story: Matt 1:18-21; Luke 1:26-56

God sent an angel to tell Mary good news! The angel surprised her. The angel said, "Don't be afraid, Mary! God has important news for you. You will have a baby. Name Him Jesus. He is the Savior God promised to send--God's own Son." 

Mary wanted to TELL her good news! She went to see her cousin, Elizabeth. Elizabeth would soon have a baby, too! Elizabeth also knew that Mary's baby would be the Savior God promised to send. Elizabeth and Mary praised God together! 

God sent an angel to another person. Joseph was going to be Mary's husband. In a dream, an angel talked to him. 

The angel said, "Don't be afraid to get married to Mary. The baby is the Savior God promised to send. Name the baby Jesus." Joseph believed God's promise was about to come true!
