GCI Creative Christmas Ideas
As we approach Advent and Christmas many of our Hope Avenue leaders are thinking about creative ways to celebrate the season while still holding digital services. Check out the ideas below generated by our GCI Creative Community Facebook Page . Drop a comment below with any additional ideas, and join the Facebook group to share and garner tips, hacks, and new ideas.
Christmas Service ideas:
- Wear the holiday on your sleeves: Ask members to wear Christmas sweaters and other holiday gear. If you’re using Zoom snap a pic of the group.
- Deck your halls: incorporate Advent candle lighting into your digital service, and then have a manger scene or other Christmas symbols in the background for your Christmas service.
- You could even have different members create a different “set” with Christmas symbols in their homes for different parts of the service (ex. candle lighting, communion, scripture reading, etc.)
- Chrismas caroling: pre-record parts of Christmas Carols from different families and combine it into a medley or just one song.
- use creative instruments like maybe spoons and pots to add some humor.
