WELCOME!

TODAY WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO JOIN US THROUGH THESE SIMPLE STEPS AS WE WORSHIP & JOURNEY TOGETHER.

STEP 1

PREPARATION

Prepare your heart and mind as you begin church at home.

Take a moment to read the following scripture: Matthew 1:18-25

Bible Lessons

STEP 2

WORSHIP

A great expression of worship is through song.  Take a moment to check out this week's

Christmas playlist.

STEP 4 

DISCUSSION

Share a few memories of past Christmases either with your household or in a moment of personal reflection. What things are you grateful for?

2021 had many ups and downs. How did you see God's faithfulness this year?

What happens when we tie our hope and joy to the world (or world events) instead of Christ?

The Apostle Paul encouraged a young church to "put on Christ". What does that mean and what is the evidence of "putting on Christ"?

Chatting Over Coffee

STEP 5
MISSION & PRAYER

Between now and Christmas Day, read Luke 2 and underline any parts of the text that stand out to you. 

 

Invite someone to talk about their experiences in 2021. What encouragement can you give through the sharing of stories?

Pray for an opportunity to share the love of Christ with someone this week.

Some people experience extreme loneliness during the holidays. How can you bring joy into the life of someone who may struggle during this time?

Have a story to share?
