You're A Gift Christmas Challenge!
Life FM is partnering with churches and youth groups all throughout Aotearoa to show kindness and generosity this Christmas! Watch the video of Bjorn and Josh showing how it works, and if you want to take part, download the printable card and video to show your church and youth group from the Life FM website. Remember to tag Life FM, your church and the mates you're challenging with your social media video upload!
Want your Church to take part? It's nice and simple! Here's what to do:
1. Youth groups, families and church small groups hand a "You're a gift" Christmas card to anyone in their local neighbourhood and community. Simply smile and say "Merry Christmas"
2. Inside the card is printed John 3:16, a space to include an invitation to your church's Christmas events, and you add a simple gift of $5 (or coffee voucher, etc.).
3. Simply have a friend video your gift giving in any public space with your phone
4. Upload your video on your social media, tag Life FM, your church and challenge and tag another person or group to do the same (by video or in your Facebook post).
Life FM will then share these stories on air all throughout December.
And here's some help with the logistics!
a. Decide what days or weeks you want to bless your local neighbourhoods.
b. Download the "You're a Gift" Christmas Cards to print and use for your own church.
c. Print your church's Christmas event(s) invite on a sticky label and insert it on the card, or directly print your information onto the downloaded .pdf (see point b above).
d. Show the promotion video in your church, and then have people in your church decide how many cards and gifts they each want to give.
This Christmas watch your teens, families and church experience that it truly is more blessed to give than receive.
