Weekend Teaching Series: Christmastime (1-off)

Sermon in a Sentence: This weekend it was fun to be back teaching after taking some time off in November. This weekend I spoke about Christmas time with a message called Christmas Is a Time For (which you can check out in the DYM store) … and had fun talking about what I love about Christmas, and how important Christmas is for families, forgiveness andour faith. I love helping students navigate through some of the challengins aspects of adolescence – family and holidays is certainly one of them. And LOVE teaching the Christmas story as well – we ended with a special candlelight service as welll that set the mode and the traditional reading of teh Christmas story off just right. Great weekend!

Service Length: 62 minutes

Element of Fun/Positive Environment: We had a really fun weekend – we played Chrsitmas Pictionary, had a hialrious Chrsitmas rap and lots of laughs and fun with Christmas songs. We had lots of student greeters and great energy – we only get 2 Christmas weekends a year, this one and next week’s Christmas play, so it is always fun togo all in with Christmas!

Music Playlist: Angels We Have Heard on High, Noel (Hillsong Y&F version), Silent Night, O Come Let Us Adore Him

Favorite Moment: I loved the new version of Noel we sang this weekend. Love it!
