Celebrating Christmas Sunday-School Style

By Dan Kassis

There are many ways that a Sunday School class can celebrate Christmas together. Depending on your group's size and age range, you have the freedom to plan and coordinate activities that will be fun and meaningful for everyone.

Times of fellowship and festivities are always favorites. The provide a break from the routine of class meetings and study time, and help members form closer bonds with each other. But don't forget that combining Christmas gatherings with outreach or service opportunities can give your Sunday School ministry the satisfaction of doing good things in Jesus' name. What more appropriate way could there be to honor Christ's birth than to help share the love and hope He brought to earth?

Through our email newsletters we asked readers to share some of the Christmas activities their Sunday School ministries have planned. The responses we received show a good variety of fellowship, worship, service, and outreach. Use these ideas as a guide for your own groups.


Until next time...share the journey and enjoy the ride!
