The Shepherds' Story

According to Luke 2:8-20, on the night of Jesus’ birth, there were humble shepherds in the fields nearby Bethlehem. A host of angels appeared to the shepherds and told them of the Messiah’s birth. Excited, they went quickly to find the baby Jesus. Jesus would be a King, but not the kind of king people were expecting. If you're preparing a lesson on the shepherds' visit to baby Jesus, you may find the free, printable activities listed below to be helpful.
