I Told You So!
Old Testament Prophecies / Incarnation
Life Night Outline
Goal of this Night
The goal of this night is to help the teens understand that the coming of the Messiah was prophesized more than 700 years before His birth. This night will also help the teens understand that the Incarnation is the lynchpin of Scripture and the story of salvation. Finally, the teens will be challenged to invite Christ to be the central part of their own lives, especially through devotion to the Eucharist.
About this night
The coming of Christ was foretold more than 700 years before His actual Incarnation. This Life Night takes a deeper look at the Incarnation and how we are called to continually invite Christ into our heart. The night begins with a Christmas theme and a competition based on popular Christmas songs. The teaching for this night is given by the different prophets that spoke about the coming of the Messiah. The Break challenges the teens to find the fulfillments of Old Testament prophesies regarding Christ and ends with a small group discussion. In the Send, the teens will have an opportunity to encounter the incarnate Christ in Eucharistic Adoration.
This week’s Life Night is another in our Scripture semester. The topic we are discussing is the Incarnation of Christ and how this pivotal point in salvation history brings together the Old Testament and the New Testament. This night will also challenge the teens to a deeper devotion to Christ incarnate in the Eucharist.
Discussion Questions for you and your teen:
- How is the mystery of the Incarnation relevant to your life today?
- Do you believe that God fulfills his promises even today? Why or why not?
- How can we as a family make time for Christ in the Eucharist?
The idea behind this environment is to make it as much of a “winter wonderland” as possible. Cut out snowflakes from white paper and hang them all around the room. Get some cotton batting from a local craft store to use as snow. Decorate a Christmas tree with lights and ornaments for the front of the room. Hang the Christmas lights. For added effect, ask the Core to dress up in their best holiday sweaters and scarves. If they are up to it, some of the Core can walk around singing Christmas carols. Be as creative as possible with this environment. Contact parents to help decorate and donate decorations.
