A 4-WEEK CHALLENGE

Hello Group Leaders! This Christmas season we are challenging one another to reconsider the way we view Christmas, so much so that it changes the way we spend our money and time. To that end, we submit to you the four tenents of the Advent Conspiracy: worship fully, spend less, give more, and love all. You will find a group study and question guide under each tenent. In addition to this, there are more resources that your group members can use on their own or with their families this Christmas season to bring Christ back to the center of this time of year. As always, if you have questions, feel free to reach out to our Life Group Coordinator, Tim Morgan.


INTRO VIDEO

If you haven't already, please start by having your group watch the video below. After that, dive into the first study, Worship Fully.

WEEK 1: WORSHIP FULLY

Nearly every character in the Christmas story that encountered our King responded in the same way: worship. Let’s make the conscious effort to reorient our hearts toward Christ. Christmas began with worship, may it end with worship.



WEEK 2: SPEND LESS

In our hearts we know mindless consumption is not the way to celebrate Jesus. But spending less does not mean spending nothing. Rather we will thoughtfully evaluate what companies and causes we support through our purchases.


WEEK 3: GIVE MORE

The best gifts celebrate a relationship and most often they require our time and energy. Relational giving means that we think about the other person–who they are and what they care about. We focus more on giving our undivided presence and less on a pile of presents under the tree.



WEEK 4: LOVE ALL

Christmas is a chance to move closer to those in crisis. We will love others as Jesus has loved us. The poor and hurting of our world can be reached by God through the way we choose to celebrate Christmas.
