Advent season is around the corner. What will you encourage your groups to do, to prepare their hearts to focus on Jesus this season? Advent is also a great time to consider reaching out to your neighbors, friends, and family, sharing with them the real meaning behind Christmas. Below are Advent ideas for your small group:

Advent Ideas for Your Small Group

1. Advent Calendar

Why not create an Advent calendar that will provide both individuals and groups with a simple daily focus. You can be creative in how you do this, and you can also be as specific as connecting it with your Advent Series (if you have one). This is also a great opportunity to reach and engage anyone in your Church family that is not connected in a group, as well as sharing with neighbors, friends and family, and encouraging them to participate! In creating this calendar, you can focus on Scripture verse meditations, and provide simple questions for daily reflection; provide a worship song for the day; encourage a specific prayer and/or suggest an act of service. When you come together as a group, you can discuss each of the week’s “tasks” and have a time of sharing. If any of your neighbors, friends, or family participate — invite them to join you for your group!!!
