This Christmas Volunteer Email Week 3 - Grow Youth & Kids Ministry Curriculum

All we want for Christmas . . . is to serve alongside this team forever. Thanks for being the greatest crew of volunteers in history.

Here’s a few things coming up in our ministry . . .

ADD THE DATE: Joy to the Neighborhood
This month, we’ll be encouraging teenagers to focus on others (instead of themselves) this Christmas with a service project. Get all the details on our website.

ADD THE DATE: Volunteer Christmas Party
Let’s celebrate the holidays with a little fun, food, and friends! Come hang with us. There will be games, presents, and zero meetings.

WEEK 3 BIG IDEA: You need your family and your family needs you.

When we think about Christmas, a few things probably come to mind: the Christmas presents (of course), the decorations, the family get-togethers, and . . . oh yeah, maybe even Jesus. In this series, you’ll challenge students to make this Christmas the best one yet — one where they give generously, examine their hearts, value their families, and allow Jesus to change them from the inside out.


Sometimes it’s hard to have a productive conversation with teenagers. Here are 10 tips for making those conversations better. (And here’s a hint: it’s going to require you to do a little less talking.) Click here to watch now.

Choose a volunteer to celebrate this week. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
