Family Faith Formation Resources | Christmas


This article is part of the Family Faith Formation Toolkit - a collection of resources for equipping ministry leaders, parents, and caregivers with family faith practices and resources, brought to you by Faith Formation Ministries.

In the following links you’ll find creative resources and practices for Christmas to use both in community and at home. These ideas can be seamlessly woven into existing church programs and into family life.

Christmas: In Community

Also check out the ideas on our Advent: In Community post.

  • For many college students and young adults, visiting their family for the holidays means attending worship at Christmas, even if they’re not in the habit of attending church. Remind everyone to roll out the welcome mat for returning family members by sharing Welcoming All at Christmas.

  • Include all ages during worship with a retelling of the Christmas story using either of these Two Intergenerational Christmas Participation Stories.

  • These Quick and Easy Christmas Dramas provide churches with theologically sound Christmas programs that adults and kids will love—and you can pull them off with only one rehearsal!

  • Looking for an appropriate book to read during the Christmas service? Check out these Christmas Story Books for Worship.

Christmas: At Home
