If you are looking for an alternative to a talk/sermon at a Christmas event then you could use this Christmas – who wants to be a millionaire quiz.
As well as being fun, the quiz is designed to explain some of what happened during the first Christmas and to help people to think about why Jesus came.
Sadly some people will tune out when a talk starts and this quiz provides an alternative way of communicating the truth of what the Christmas story is all about. The quiz will work in carol services and school assemblies or other community events.
I tend to add brief, almost throwaway like, sentences between some of the questions. For example after the Immanuel question, I would say how amazing it is that God became human before reading the next question.
The final slide contains a picture of the angels telling the shepherds of the birth of Jesus and this is a wonderful reminder that God wants us all to hear the good news. The first people that God told of the coming of his son Jesus into the world were people who would find it hard or perhaps impossible to go to worship because of their work as shepherds.
Whether you usually go to church or not, God wants you to know that he sent his son Jesus into this world as a human being to make it possible for us to know God.
Now that is something worth celebrating!
