Start a New Family Christmas Tradition with The Manger Mission

This is the perfect time to start new family Christmas traditions. Teach your little ones the story of the first Christmas.

The Manger Mission: A Family Christmas Tradition is a child-led and Jesus-focused activity, anticipating Jesus’ birth while taking part in the journey of the Wise Men. After reading the accompanying story, children choose a place for the three Wise Men to begin their journey through their home, every day moving them closer to the nativity where they can once again see baby Jesus. On Christmas morning, children return the Wise Men to the nativity to complete this Christmas tradition.
