Spending Time in the Word

If you are thinking about reading them aloud at a Christmas gathering, why not get many involved in readings?

You can make it fun by taking all of these verses, putting them in a hat, and whoever draws it out of the hat must read it and give an explanation of what it means to them, and how it’s relevant to the holiday.

Giving a tribute to Jesus is important; we must keep Christ in Christmas!

How does your family spend time with Jesus at Christmas?
