A FREE Experiential Christmas Bible Study

A FREE Experiential Christmas Bible Study

Benjamin Kerns is a friend of ym360's. He's helped write some of our "elements" curriculum and has written some blog posts as a ym360 Contributor. (He also blogs regularly at his excellent site "Average Youth Ministry.") Benjamin was kind enough to share an experiential Christmas Bible study lesson plan he wrote for his youth group. It's an Advent/Christmas experience that’s perfect for a mid-week gathering or Sunday School.

It’s a little different than a traditional Bible study. It’s great if you’re looking to have your students learn about the Christmas narrative in a more experiential way.

Here’s how it works:

  1. You’ll need to set-up five rooms, or five areas of your church where students can go to interact experientially with various aspects of the Christmas narrative.
  2. Ideally, you’ll need an adult in each room to facilitate the interaction. Though, if you don’t have that many volunteers you can simply lead the interaction in each room yourself.
  3. You can debrief after each room, or once you’re done with all of them. The two questions we used to debrief are: How do you identify with this character? How can you move more towards Jesus this Christmas?
