It's Christmas!

Scripture The Christmas Story
Music: Sing your families favorite Christmas songs! Let each family member tell his/her favorite! Maybe you can choose one that will be come your Family Christmas Song !


"Simplify your Christmas by embracing the spiritual side of the season.
The gift of Christmas isn't wrapped up in presents or parties. The gift of Christmas is Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten of the Father, the Son of God. As you follow Him, you put people first. You may spend less time in lines and more time serving others. You may spend less money on - and more time with – the people you love.
You may lose yourself and you may find everything else that matters. "

Family Testimony of Jesus Christ.
As a family, share your testimony of Jesus Christ. Take notes.... and make a compilation.
Include your Family Testimony with your Christmas cards this year!

Think of a family or neighbor who could use a special thought from you and your family. It could be someone who has lost their job, who has lost a family member, or someone who is having a difficult time financially. You may not be able to help them in a physical way, but you can take time to write a family note, draw pictures, or give them a call and let them know you care. If your choice is someone who is suffering spiritually, include your testimony.

The Christmas Story
Before the evening is over, plan to re-inact the Christmas story on Christmas or Christmas Eve. Tonight, choose the characters, costumes ... etc. This will give everyone time to prepare for the "performance."

Hot Chocolate... A testimony makes us feel warm inside.

Merry Christmas to everyone from the Proberts!
