WEEK 3


JOHN 1:14, JOHN 3:16

Love requires action.

REMEMBER THIS:


For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 

ISAIAH 9:6 NIV

DO THIS:

 MORNING TIME


Have a conversation about one thing that you’re excited about and one thing that stresses you out during the Christmas season. Ask your students for their answers first, and then share your responses as well.

 DRIVE TIME


One night, have your family all get in their pajamas with hot chocolate in hand and jump in the car. Turn the Christmas music up and drive around looking at Christmas lights. If you’re feeling competitive, judge the Christmas lights and displays you find and pick the winner at the end.

 MEAL TIME


As a family, find a few places you can serve together this season—maybe a local nonprofit, soup kitchen, or charity in your community. Let your kid choose which place they’d like to serve, and set up a time to go together. Letting your kid choose gives them a little ownership and will help them be more excited to serve.

 BED TIME


Have a family Christmas contest before bed. It could be a coloring contest, a gingerbread contest, an ornament making contest, or a Christmas caroling contest. Be sure to have a fun prize for the winner!
