Can you believe Christmas is only a few weeks away? We hope you and your family are loving this holiday season. 

Here are a few things coming up in our ministry . . .

ADD YOUR OWN DATES: THE JOY JAM
This month, we’re getting kids and families together for a fun night of jam sessions, jam tasting, and rockin’ those jammies! (Are you sensing a theme?) Mark your calendars!

ADD YOUR OWN DATES: VOLUNTEER MEETING(S)
It’s time for another volunteer meeting! We have some great things planned to close off the year. We hope to see you there as we learn about [add your own topic(s)] together.

MAIN EVENT: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON CHRISTMAS
WEEK 1 BIG IDEA: WE CAN CELEBRATE GOD’S PLAN

SERIES OVERVIEW:

The Christmas season is filled with many celebrations but Jesus being born is the biggest reason to celebrate! Even though we have heard the story of baby Jesus many times by now, for your youngest kids, it’s still a fairly new story that they usually only hear once a year. Help them feel the wonder and excitement of Christmas each week, in anticipation of the big day! In addition to all the holiday tidings, remind your kids that they can celebrate God’s plan for Jesus’ birth. We can worship Jesus and celebrate because God keeps promises!

During the holidays, “family traditions” get talked about a lot. But have you ever thought about starting a new tradition with the students you lead? You should! It can help you bond and make memories in a brand new way.

If you’re subscribed to Grow Your Ministry, now would be a good time to link to Volunteer Tip Video #11 from your Volunteer section.

 

At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
