Featured December 2018 — THE PERFECT GIFT


For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by His grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus (Romans 3:23–24). 

Icebreaker idea: Best Gift – Christmas is a time for giving and receiving gifts.  What is the best gift you have ever given or received? 

Devotion — Opening: The Perfect Gift
Devotion — Closing: It’s a New Day
— New: God’s Perfect Gift 

Bible Study — Select from the Lutheran Woman’s Quarterly, Winter 2018. If copies of the printed Quarterly do not arrive in time for the group's meeting, consult the LWML website to download the online version of one of the Bible studies from that corresponding Quarterly magazine.

Mission Servants ProjectENGAGE with nursing home residents by hosting a birthday party for Jesus. Sing carols, read the Christmas story from Luke 2, then ask residents to tell about the best Christmas gift they ever received. Next, read this month’s opening devotion, “The Perfect Gift.” Serve a birthday cake decorated in Jesus’ honor.
