Catch up on how things have been over the past week. Then ask group members to share a way in which God has worked in your life in a surprising way.
Pray that you’d be deeply impacted by God’s word and be equipped to impact others in Jesus’ name. Ask a group member to read Matthew 1:18-25. We’re not using videos for Christmas Impact groups, so you might like to read the passage twice.
Suggested questions to help your discussion.
Matthew 1 teaches us that God sometimes demands risky obedience from his people. Yet he always walks with us, as Immanuel. We are never alone.
Pray for these situations and for other needs within your group.
As we head into Christmas, there’s lots we’ll miss this year. But what opportunities do we have to show something of the reality of our Immanuel God?
(Leaders – think how you could make this part of your gathering Christmassy. It might be possible to deliver a mince pie or a mulled wine teabag to each member for them to open at this point. Or simply play Christmas music in the background!)
Here are some ideas.
Agree the time your Impact Group will meet next week, and close in prayer.
