You will be blessed, and then...

One of the most unique parts of the Christmas season is that it is a time where EVERYONE wants something. Whether it is big or small theres something that we want or something that we would change going into it. 

Far to often when we don't get what we want... our faith gets affected. 

This week we are going to learn that sometimes we are blessed and get what we want, but when we don't get what we want we get better equipped to be the blessing. 

Small group questions

1. What was a powerful and/or emotional experience that you have had that you think "oh you just had to be there?"

2. What is something small that you want for Christmas? What is something you wish would be different about the upcoming holiday season?

3. Is it more important to be blessed or to be a blessing during this season?

4. How might you be a blessing to others this holiday season?

December schedule

  • december 10 - Welcome to the neighborhood

    When someone new arrives, everything changes. That was never more true than Christmas day, about 2000 years ago. When the word became flesh and blood and moved into our neighborhood, everything changed for everyone. This Christmas, we're going to take a few weeks to talk about what exactly this means for today's teenagers. This Christmas, students will discover why everything changes when Jesus shows up. 

  • december 17 - study night

    It's exam week so we are taking a break from our regular Anthem night to offer a study night for those who need time to study or want a break from studying. Classrooms will be open for students to study alone or with others and we will offer activities for students to do if they need to take a break from studying. Smae time as Anthem: 6:30-8:30pm. 

  • december 24 & 31 - no anthem

    Due to Christmas break, there will be NO ANTHEM on December 24 and December 31. We will kick off the new year on January 7, 2024!
