mom of 44 Stars Out Of 5mom of 4December 20, 2016mom of 4Quality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4This was a nice fiil-in for December before Christmas for our adult Sunday school class. I didnt give 5 stars just because it was basic knowledge about the Christmas story, but we all need to be reminded of the basics.
Victoria2 Stars Out Of 5Need Book to Go With It - Not In DepthDecember 18, 2015VictoriaQuality: 3Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1I was truly disappointed with this study. From reading the description and information online it seemed as if you did not have to have the Purpose of Christmas book and that this could be a stand alone DVD/Workbook study. Although it is literally possible to do this study without reading the book, it is extremely basic and not what my group was looking for at all. The biggest draw was that it was a 3 week study which was all we needed but I would not recommend you choose this one unless you are a new believer or only wanting the most basic principles about your faith.

However we all agreed that it turned out to be more much more than we thought it would be. Great for using the mind and re-evaluate the Purpose of Christmas. Would recommend it for everyone. Great dollar value as well. We are busy planning our birthday party for Jesus.

Session 1 is 14 minutes, session 2 is 15 minutes and session 3 is 24 minutes long.
Q: Is Rick Warren's "The Purpose of Christmas" good for a middle school group?
This study is geared more for adults so some of the application questions would be difficult for young people with little life experience to answer.
