Welcome Poems For Church Anniversary

Let us celebrate a grand feast,
From the greatest to the least,
Let us rejoice, on this happy morn,
The special day our church was born.

God bless those who planted the seed,
And those who gave to every need,
And those who labored, with such care,
To build this church, God’s House of Prayer.

May we follow their example bright,
Generously live, do what’s right,
Like them, may we, give God our best,
So our souls can find his rest.

May all who come find peace and light,
May God’s presence and his might,
Gently guard this holy place,
May all find joy, abundant grace.

Thank you, God, for what’s been done,
Here at this place, through your Son,
May your work, keep on growing,
Love and peace overflowing. Amen.

100 year church anniversary poems

We have gathered here today to celebrate 100 years

Years of service to the community

We praise and thank our loving God

He raised us up to proclaim the word

If those who founded this vision would wake today from their sleep

They will thank the Lord for what they did

We have really expanded and moved from

One glory to another

It is because of the love of God

We are sure that the Lord will guide us always

He want to us to preach the gospel to all four corner

Of the world before the end comes

We believe that Jesus is coming soon

And as a church we trust and believe that

The good work that the Lord started in us

Will bring to an end when Jesus comes soon

Therefore as we share this great love that as put

As together here today

We can only say that it is God that we have seen

His hand at work

The blessings are overflowing to us as a church

It is our prayers that we continue seeking his will in us

So that another 100 years from now our children and many

Generations coming will celebrate what we are laying down


Christian Christmas Poems For Sunday School

A Song Was Heard at Christmas
By Timothy Dudley-Smith

A song was heard at Christmas
To wake the midnight sky,

A Saviour’s birth, and peace on earth,
And praise to God on high.

The angels sing at Christmas
With all the hosts above,
And still we sing the newborn King,
His glory and His love.


This next Christmas poem for Sunday School has words that are simple, but that capture the spirit of this special holiday.

Christmas Lights
By Marie Irish

Bright Christmas Stars shine on high,
Golden stars in the wintery sky;
Christmas candles in windows bright,
Sends greetings into the night.

While in our hearts the Christmas flame,
Glows with a love like His who came;
The infant Christ of lowly birth,
To bring good will and peace to earth.


This poem would make a wonderful addition to any Christmas Sunday School lesson, with its message of friendship of kindness to all people.

There’s More to Christmas…
Author Unknown

There’s more, much more to Christmas
Than candlelight and cheer;
It’s the spirit of sweet friendship
That brightens all the year;
It’s thoughtfulness and kindness,
It’s hope reborn again,
For peace, for understanding,
For goodwill to men!

Christian Christmas Poem by an Unknown Author

Our collection of Christmas poems for Sunday School would not be complete without this poem about the true meaning of Christmas, which is faith and love.

Christmas Giving
By Iris W. Bray

Christmas is for giving
And for showing that we care,
For honouring the Christ Child
With the loving gifts we share

The wise men gave of riches;
The shepherds, faith and love.
Each gift, in its own measure,
Was smiled on from above.

Let every gift be treasured;
Not always size or price
Determines the extent of love
And willing sacrifice.

Handsome gifts with festive trim
Brings smiles of sweet content,
But modest gifts of humble means
Are ofttimes heaven sent.

Whether it be large or small
Each gift will share in part
The message of true Christmas joy
If given from the heart!


This Christmas poem for Sunday School welcomes the birth of Baby Jesus.

A Little Carol
By Evaleen Stein

Welcome, little Brother!
Lowly, holy One!
Hail thee, Virgin Mother,
More than any other
Blessed in thy Son!

Child, since the poor manger
Once thou didst not scorn,
Rest thee, little Stranger,
Folded from all danger,
In our hearts new-born!

Nestle thus, we pray thee,
In our love’s caress;
Fain we are to pay thee
Worship, and obey thee,
Babe, and Prince no less!


Children at Sunday School will love this Christmas poem about the birth of Baby Jesus in crowded Bethlehem under the starry night sky.

Before the Paling of the Stars
By Christina Georgina Rossetti

Before the paling of the stars,
Before the winter morn,
Before the earliest cock crow,
Jesus Christ was born:
Born in a stable,
Cradled in a manger,
In the world his hands had made
Born a stranger.

Priest and king lay fast asleep
In Jerusalem;
Young and old lay fast asleep
In crowded Bethlehem;
Saint and angel, ox and ass,
Kept a watch together
Before the Christmas daybreak
In the winter weather.

Jesus on his mother’s breast
In the stable cold,
Spotless lamb of God was he,
Shepherd of the fold:
Let us kneel with Mary maid,
With Joseph bent and hoary,
With saint and angel, ox and ass,
To hail the King of Glory.
