Christmas Features: Expectations and a Declaration and Christians without Christmas

During the evening ask youth to share their expectations for the advent season and later compare them to the expectations of the Jewish people at the time of Christ's birth.

Begin by advising that the group will sing a 'welcome to advent' carol, 'O Come All Ye Faithful'. A verse or two will probably do. Then ask youth to verbally share their expectations. Leaders should record them. There will probably be some reference to the singing of Christmas carols or Christmas music...

"I totally had to get this book"

Jo writes regarding Not the Same Old, Done-it-before Youth Meetings ... "I think this book is really good and helpful. I first read the online version of the book because I did not want to pay for it. But after reading a couple of program ideas and having a very very successful youth program I totally HAD to get this book. It is well worth the money."

I am wondering if you could provide some guidance for me...

I was recently asked to establish a youth program for a small church in Toronto, Canada. Without having much training in this area, I realize I need some guidance on how to do this. M.D.
