Operation Christmas Child - Serving Night
Tonight we and our students have the awesome opportunity to serve together as a Lifeline family. We are working with Samaritans Purse to pack boxes for Operation Christmas Child. All over the world there are kids who have never received a Christmas gift or heard the story of Jesus. Over the last couple week we have been collecting supplies that we will be packing into shoeboxes that Operation Christmas Child (OCC) will then ship all over the world to these children, allowing us a chance to give them a Christmas gift, but also an opportunity for OCC to share the story of Jesus with them through local pastors.
We so excited and thankful for our students & your generosity, and that we can do something so simple to impact kids around the world.
Huddle time: Here’s some ideas to help generate conversations during that time:
Ask a Ice-Breaker question that we used during leader meeting that night
Ask each student to share a high and a low from their week.
Teaching Discussion: Here are some questions to help you create conversation around the night’s topic. Remember that you don’t have to make it through all of these questions! They are simply a tool to help you facilitate conversation.
Have you ever received a meaningful gift?
Have you ever prepared a meaningful gift for someone? What was the experience like?
Can you remember the first time you heard about Jesus?
What are some gifts you have been given from God?
Can you think of some ways to share your gifts/talents with others?
Have someone read Luke 21:1-4. What does Jesus say about giving in this passage?
Registration for snow camp will be opening soon! We’ll be sure to let you know soon as it is, but please save the date and we’d love to have you attend! This is a very important event for students individually and for small groups as a whole.

Bring Your Bibles!
We would love for students to bring their Bibles to Lifeline this year! We are hoping this helps students become more familiar with the habit of opening up and reading from their Bible; it will also help them more easily follow along with the teaching at Lifeline!
