Extreme Christian Living
Women's Ministry Theme

Julia Bettencourt

Posted September 22, 2011



Spiritual Application

Living the Christian life to its fullest.

Being redeemed in Christ.

A theme revolving around the use of coupons and saving, but emphasizing "extreme" Christian living.

A great time to focus on Christ's redemption and saving grace.


Theme Verse Suggestions


In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.  Colossians 1:14


If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 1 Corinthians 3:14

Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;

But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:  1 Peter 1;18,19

Decorating

Color:  any

Poster board size coupons.

Outline the edges with dashes. 

 Write out "saving" and "redemption" Bible verses on them.

If you are exchanging coupons or cutting out coupons during the evening, try to leave your tables cleared of decorations as much as possible.

Use expired coupons placed on wooden skewers and placed in vases with flowers for table arrangements.   You can also add in receipts that are glued to skewers as well.  Long ones curled up would be fun. 


Icebreakers

Shopping Cart Race. 


Have several grocery items scattered about the room. 

Have two volunteers race against each other and use handled baskets (instead of shopping carts). 

Give each volunteer a shopping list and see who can fill their basket first.
