Build a Manger?
This DIY Manger Kit is Fun and
When you think of the baby Jesus in the manger, I urge you to consider the incredible example of manhood in Jesus Christ.
Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Philippians 2:5-9
By leaving God’s side to take on human flesh, Jesus was demonstrating humility, service and selfless sacrifice. Simply put, There’s Manhood in the Manger! ®
The Manger Build from Noble Warriors
That’s why Noble Warriors (a ministry that serves churches; helping them equip men to walk with Christ and lead well) has developed two resources to help men step up and lead this Christmas.
The Manger Build® is a resource for churches. Using the information provided, a team of men from the local church prays, plans and prepares to host The Manger Build®. A time when men come out to build life-sized managers with their children or someone else’s. Pre-cut wood and instructions make the activity fun and simple but the daily devotions help dads lead their families to keep Christ in front of Christmas. These managers are really big enough to hold a baby! Learn more at www.themangerbuild.org
