Children's Sermons for Advent 3
Important People | Matthew 11:2-11

Object: Red Carpet or red blanket or plastic red tablecloth

Today I have rolled out the red carpet for you.  We are not famous people, movie stars or royalty, so maybe you have not had this kind of fancy treatment. But often for very important people, red carpet is actually put down for them to walk on.
