Inspired by Glen Hendricks’ Submission
SUPPLIES NEEDED: 2 sheets of labels, 60 index cards, the names of 30 Christmas Songs/Carols.
Select 30 songs and print 2 copies of the sheets. Place each label (containing the Scripture reference) on a 3 X 5 index card.
Divide the group into two teams. Pass out a set of the cards to each team.
Without talking each team member finds the person on the opposite team that has the same Christmas song.
Once they team up, the two run to the front of the room, ring some jingle bells and sing the song together for everyone to hear.
A point is given to the team that matches their card, and sings the song first.

Teen girls feel comfortable exploring the Scriptures and over 500 further-study notes because of the relevant format!

Version: The Message (Eugene Peterson)
God’s Word was meant to be read.
But more than that, it was meant to be understood. It was first written in the language of the people—of fishermen, shopkeepers, and carpenters. The Message gets back to that: You can read it and understand it.
In The Message Remix, there are new verse-numbered paragraphs that will help you study and find favorite passages. Or, you can just read it like a book and let the narrative impact you. After all, it is God’s story, with its heroes and villains, conflicts and resolutions. Either way, it’s God’s Word—the Truth—in a user-friendly form.
