Icebreaker: What two positive qualities about your mom or dad come to mind as you recall your childhood?
  • Read Matthew 1:18-19. How would you feel if you were in Joseph’s place? What would you plan to say to your family and friends? What would you plan to say to God?
  • Read Matthew 1:20–25. What reason does Matthew give for Jesus being born (v. 21)? What is the most striking thing about this story to you? What does Joseph teach us about faith?
  • Read Philippians 4:4-7. What advice is given in these few verses? What would your life look like if you fully followed all of this advice? What keeps you from fully living it out?

Icebreaker: What would you bring as a gift for the baby Jesus in Bethlehem?

 
Read Matthew 2:1-6. Why was it important that Jesus be born in Bethlehem? Since the Magi were pagan astrologers, why would they leave everything in order to follow the star? Why do you suppose the Magi were the only ones who followed the star to Bethlehem? Why do you think Herod was so concerned that the baby be found?
 
Read Matthew 2:7-12. Look at the responses of the Magi upon seeing Jesus. How was their response similar to when you met Jesus for the first time? How was it different? What do the star, the Magi, and the gifts teach about the nature and significance of Jesus?
 
In your journey toward God, how are you like the Magi? Have you had to leave anything to follow Jesus? Have you had to make sacrifices?
 
How can we pray for each other?

This Sunday we are starting a brand new series.

The song tells us that Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. When we look at the surrounding Jesus’ birth they were wonderful, but there were also some things that were downright ugly.

As we walk through this new series we will be looking at how even an ugly season can be filled with hope, peace, joy and love. We hope you can join us Sundays at 9, 9:30 and 11:15.

Also Join us on Christmas Eve at 5pm and 11pm.
