Current SERIES: 'Tis THe Season
A SERIES ABOUT CHRISTMAS
This is a 3 week series about how to understand and navigate the Bible and access all the tools it makes available to us to live a better life.
Have a conversation about one thing that you’re excited about and one thing that stresses you out during the Christmas season. Ask your students for their answers first, and then share your responses as well.
One night, have your family all get in their pajamas with hot chocolate in hand and jump in the car. Turn the Christmas music up and drive around looking at Christmas lights. If you’reup for it, judge the Christmas lights and displays you find and pick the winner at the end.
As a family, find a few places you can serve together this season—maybe a local nonprofit, soup kitchen, or charity in your community. Let your kid choose which place they’d like to serve, and set up a time to go together. Letting your kid choose gives them ownership and will help them be more excited to serve.
Have a family Christmas contest before bed. It could be a coloring contest, a gingerbread contest, an ornament making contest, or a Christmas caroling contest. Be sure to have a fun prize for the winner!

THINK ABOUT THIS...WEEK 1:
Middle schoolers struggle with self-awareness. As frustrating as it can be, try to keep in mind that your kids need help being aware of their emotions and behaviors.
