Introduction: Includes ideas and tips to consider when hosting a women’s ministry Christmas event.

Summary:

Some women’s ministry teams do not host a Christmas event—that’s okay!—and instead support other events going on at their church.

Tips for women’s ministry teams that want to host a Christmas event:

  • Events we host for ourselves
    • Might use guest speakers, decorated tables, special music, etc.
    • Avoid gift-exchange formats that can result in hurt feelings
  • Events we host as an outreach (may look similar to “internal” events)
    • Focus on unchurched women: share the gospel message
    • Follow up with an invite to other events
    • Consider sharing a Christ-focused favor, a great way to share the gospel message
  • Events or activities that serve other
    • Partner with other ministries
      • Parachurch ministries—faith-based organizations that work across denominational lines
      • Collect for families in need
      • Schools—collect items for students, classrooms, events; volunteer to help in person
      • Organize or distribute gifts for a local organization
    • Include an opportunity or activity that serves others
      • Write notes for newly widowed in your ministry
      • Donate food for Christmas food baskets
      • Collect undergarments for local women’s shelter
      • Assemble small gifts for teachers at local schools
    • Not necessary to host at church
    • The best Christmas women’s ministry events
      • Make attendees welcome
      • Keep the focus on Christ in the event content and even in the little details
        • event name
        • Scripture included on publicity
        • Scripture worked into centerpieces
        • Scripture-based gifts for each participant; consider CTA as a source for gifts
