This weekend we started our brand new Christmas series entitled “IT’S AN IGNITION CHRISTMAS!”. Keep on reading for a breakdown of the games we used, message ideas, song choices and more!
Series: ”IT’S AN IGNITION CHRISTMAS!”
Pre-Service: It’s Christmas again, so we had to use my buddy Grant’s “That’s Christmas” video as our countdown. This video never gets old.
Grade Groups: Click here to download our grade group questions for this weekend
Games: This weekend we played a Christmas version of the impossible shot (students had to throw plastic snowflakes through a hanging wreath) and a game of “FINISH THAT LYRIC: CHRISTMAS EDITION” where students had to finish the lyrics to popular Christmas songs.
Message: Me and one of our IGNITION staff taught this weekend on HOW we can know that Jesus is REAL. We talked about how, unlike the myth of Santa Claus, Jesus was a real living person who has the power to transform their lives. We looked at some basic tools of apologetics that students can use to determine the validity of Jesus’ existence/ministry/resurrection.
Check out this great bumper video that we used for our “IT’S AN IGNITION CHRISTMAS” series. One of my student leaders made the video and I laughed so hard when I saw it…I had to turn around and watch it again.
How do you use video elements in your student ministry? Do you shoot/edit them as a staff or do you have students do them? Share some of your ideas in the comments section below. Merry Christmas!
