Blue, white, red and green. These are a few of the colors we associate with Christmas. For some, Christmas can be a time of sorrow, a time of forgiveness, a time to show love to others or a time of renewal. Join us each week and we look at a different color of Christmas and use it so we can dig deeper into what Christmas is.
Session 1: Blue
Big Idea: Blue is the color of Christmas due to stress and sadness and grief and loneliness that so many experience this time of year. Jesus can be our source of guidance, strength, comfort and hope.
Session 2: White
Big Idea: Christmas is about restoring us to a relationship with God where our sins have been washed “whiter than snow” and our past can be left behind us and our future is not determined by our past, but by His grace.
Session 3: Red
Big Idea: God can help us give out of love for people we don’t really feel any love for.
Session 4: Green
Big Idea: Green is the color of new life. Jesus was born to make all things new. Anything in my life that needs renewing can be renewed.
Session 5: Christmas Presence
Big Idea: The wise men didn’t just start the tradition of gift giving at Christmas. They were the beginning of a fulfillment of prophecy that Jesus would reach out to the whole world.
