3 Great Advent Ideas for Your Small Group

2. Reading Plan

There are many different reading plans and Advent devotionals to choose from. Pick one that works for your group, and commit to reading through this together. Decide what you’ll do for discussion — you can get creative and mix it up. Choose to meet as a group, or pair off into smaller Advent Groups. You can invite each group member to share the role of facilitating the discussion throughout Advent season. This is also another great outreach opportunity — why not invite neighbors, friends, or family to join you in this reading plan and group time.

3. Advent Prayer & Worship Nights

What better time to come together as a group and pray for hearts that are focused on Christ, and to worship Him, with a combination of Scripture readings and songs? This is another great opportunity to encourage group members to be involved — invite everyone to pick a week and take a role (such as planning a prayer station or sharing a Scripture verse, or leading a worship song). Involving everyone will provide your group with a variety each week, and it give others the chance to use their gifts and share their hearts for the Lord.

No matter what your group decides to do, may you be blessed as you draw near to Him throughout Advent. May He use you and your groups to help others know the real meaning behind the season.
