A gathering of Christian families at church on New Years Eve is an exciting and wonderful way to have a lot of fun together, reflect on the previous year and anticipate the New Year!
These New Years Events as a church family can bring you closer to God and closer to family and friends. What better place to spend the New Years than at church. It is also an opportunity to invite friends and neighbors who are not part of the congregation.
Normally, New Years Eve is not considered or recognized as a significant Christian date on many church calendars, but it is still a very important date in everyone's life.
Here are some great ideas for making that time special for the church family:
Eve Watch Night Service – Hold a church service the night before the new
year with different activities in different areas depending how big you want
you such as: 1. Moonbounce – For smaller children if you
are planning on outdoor activities.2. Balloon Artists – Someone who can make hats, animals, etc. out
of balloons.3. Board Games – Ask people to bring their
favorite board games, covering all ages. Place tables and chairs in one area (gymnasium,
fellowship hall, etc.). Have a few extra games on hand to use, if necessary.4. Videos – This is an important area of
the church where the children could sit down and perhaps calm down. Have a
variety of short Christian videos for children on hand such as Veggie Tales. 5. Restaurant – Set up small tables and
chairs near the kitchen where adults and teens, in particular can just hang out
and chat with each other. 6. Kid’s Corner – Put out the New Year’s
arts and crafts material, including face paints. 7. Sports Games – If your church has a
gymnasium, you can play some active sports games such as basketball or floor
hockey. There are still many circle games and chasing games that can get rid of
excess energy even if there is no sports equipment. 8. Talent Show – Organize a talent show
that could include individual or family performances, serious or funny talents. After activities, then begin the preaching and at the end of
service before 12 midnight have the whole congregation on their knees praying
in the New Year.
- Church Memory
Lane New Year’s Eve Watch Night Service – Have a PowerPoint of photos and
church events throughout the previous year for everyone to see and enjoy and/or
you can simply have a scrapbook available also full of photos and memories of
the previous year. Be sure to include all the new members of the church from
the previous year.
