Christmas Edition

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?

It’s that time of year again! Thankfully we haven’t had any snowstorms yet (except the freak October snow), and with the Christmas season comes a few tips in leading your small group well. Here are some ideas to integrate this month:

  1. Reflect on Christ’s mission. While Christ’s birth is a cute story in our culture, we need to remind ourselves of why Jesus came and how His salvation has impacted each of us. (Romans 5:18 “Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men.”)
  2. Rest. Many of you have already decided to break for the holidays, but for those who haven’t, consider taking a few weeks off because of extra work in the office and traveling.
  3. Celebrate together. Find a time to gather as a group to celebrate what God has done in your group this year. What have been the greatest memories? How has He answered prayer? What is one thing He taught you this year?

You should use this season of Christmas to intentionally lead your group in reflection, rest, and celebration. We hope you have a great season of gathering with friends and family, and we’ll be praying for you as you lead your group!
