I have compiled a list of Christmas Ladies Meeting Ideas for you to be able to quickly and easily have a resource. You can make your Christmas Ladies Meeting fun and full of meaning surrounding Christ’s birth.
Christmas Ladies Meeting Ideas
- Host the meeting in someone’s home to give your meeting a warmer feeling.
- Have a Progressive Dinner and rotate between 3 houses.
- Bake cookies together to give out in the community or to special people in the church.
- Have an apron sewing party to send to missionary wives or other ministry wives as a Christmas gift.
- Consider doing a Baby Shower for Jesus and have ladies bring gifts to help restock your nursery or toddler class with new toys, books, blankets, etc. OR sponsor a new church planter and give toward their nursery needs. See my Baby Shower for Jesus Pinterest board.
- Do crafts, like make wreaths or other gifts to give away to others.
- Go Christmas caroling to families or elderly people in your church.
Gift Exchange Ideas

Devotion Ideas from the Christmas Story
- The angels giving glory to God – Our main purpose in this life is to give glory to God also.
- Mary’s humility when approached by the angel and throughout Christ’s lifetime she is always watching and waiting.
- Joseph’s viewpoint – Faith in the impossible.
- Shepherds view a miraculous sight – are you seeing the miracles of God in your life?
- The shepherds left the stable that night and spread the news about the Saviour’s birth. – Are you sharing as excitedly as the shepherds did that night?
- The Son of God was born in a stable, and was born to die. – We should also lower ourselves to serve and sacrifice for the one who gave Himself for us.
- The star shining its light to bring the wise men to Christ. – The light of God should shine through us to bring people to Christ just the same.
I also have two other Christmas Pinterest boards if you are interested in viewing them.
