A Different Kind of Christmas DVD with Leader Guide Help your church cast a vision of living and giving like Jesus, beginning with the Christmas season and continuing through the year. This five-week study helps participants see the traps and discontentment of consumerism and the call of God to live generously to fulfill God’s mission in the world.  

Different Kind of Christmas

This five-session DVD features Mike Slaughter, Lead Pastor of Ginghamsburg United Methodist Church and popular author of Christmas Is Not Your Birthday. Each 10-15 minute video inspires viewers to approach Christmas differently and be transformed in the process. This comprehensive resource includes a 64-page Leader Guide containing everything needed to guide your group through the study. Inside you’ll find session plans and discussion questions, as well as multiple format options and suggestions of ways to make the study a meaningful experience for any group.

Sessions include:
1.  Expect a Miracle
2. Giving Up on Perfect
3. Scandalous Love
4. Jesus’ Wish List
5. By a Different Road

Note: This resource is from the United Methodist tradition in the US. Though the study uses more traditional language and images than the United Church norm, it offers an opportunity to examine and discuss our beliefs in, and experience of Christmas.
