Goal for the Life Night:
The goal for this night is for the teens to spend time in community and exchange Christmas gifts. This night will also give the teens an opportunity to participate in and practice charity through a service project in the season of giving.
Life Night at a Glance:
Christmas—the season of giving. This Life Night combines a service project with an opportunity for the teens to participate in a crazy gift exchange. The night begins with the teens gathering and voting on the best Christmas sweaters and elf costumes. The youth minister will then introduce the new teens and lead right into the teaching. The teaching will help the teens understand that Christmas is not about receiving presents but giving our presence to others— especially the poor. After the teaching the teens will do a gift exchange. The night will close in prayer and the teens will have the chance to eat Christmas cookies and take their picture with Santa.
