About Kremer Childrens Christmas Service Programs
Thank you for considering a Kremer childrens Christmas service for your church or school. Becuase this childrens Christmas service is fully reproducible, we cannot provide sample pages of the entire program. We have, however, included the opening introduction page, plus the first and last parts of each Christmas service. This should give you a good idea of the service structure.
Each childrens Christmas service comes with:
- Reproducible Teacher/Student Score on CD or sent to you via the Internet. (Both scores are formatted in PDF - the Student Score is also in Word format.)
- Sing-Along/Accompaniment music on CD or sent via the internet as an MP3. (You will need proper software to change the internet MP3 versions into a listening CD.)
"The Very First Christmas" Childrens Christmas Service Description
Length: 50 Minutes
Group Size: Any
This childrens Christmas service is based on time travel. In it we’ll travel from our children’s
service being presented this Christmas to The Very First Christmas Service that took

church, meet the first Christmas worshipers, hear the first Christmas choir sing the
first Christmas carol, listen to the first Christmas sermon, and witness the first
To enhance the theme of going back in time, this service is actually a collection of
bits and pieces gleaned from a historic collection of children’s Christmas services owned by Kremer
Publications, that date back as far as the late 1800’s. That means songs, recitations, poems, responsive
readings, and prayers are from these early worship services.
Each of the five service sections is also introduced by an elderly Christian who relates his or her
memories of children’s Christmas services in which they once participated.
