Wait For It Advent About this Life Night This night is a great way to introduce the season of Advent and help teens prepare for the coming of Christ. The first half of the night is spent celebrating the new liturgical year by having a New Year’s party. The party should get the teens excited and wound up. The excitement and anticipation should be built up and culminate into the ball drop where the “power goes out” before reaching the New Year. This excitement and anticipation sets up the teaching on what the season of Advent is and how we enter into the anticipation of both the first and second coming of Christ. In small groups, teens will be able to make New Year’s resolutions by finding four concrete ways they can pray and prepare for Christ’s coming. They will receive an Advent wreath they can place somewhere they can see it everyday. The Life Night will end by using Scripture to reflect on how God’s promises to us are fulfilled in Christ.
