One of the most treasured gifts you can give another person is a joyous memory. So this holiday season, we’re giving you five memory-making Christmas service activities that children and families alike will love.
Use these ideas to make unforgettable memories. Celebrate with family, celebrate with those in need, celebrate giving, and most importantly — celebrate Jesus!
Christmas Service Idea 1. Holiday Muggings
Extend a little holiday cheer to church visitors during the Christmas season with this special gift from the kids in your ministry.
Christmas Service Idea 2. Card Connection
Take rubber stamps and supplies for Christmas cards to a local homeless shelter. Provide stamps and envelopes so residents can mail the cards to friends and relatives.
Christmas Service Idea 3. Carols and Cookies
Take families to a nursing home to sing Christmas carols and serve cookies. A few families can even bring dogs to visit those who couldn’t come to the gathering room.
Christmas Service Idea 4. Bingo
At a senior center, get a group of families together to play bingo with the residents and serve root beer floats.
Christmas Service Idea 5. Food for Everyone
Have families go door-to-door collecting food for a local food bank.
