Family Christmas

It is so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of Christmas - shopping, lights, decorations, cookies…. it’s beautiful, but also busy. Its far too easy to crowd Jesus right out of our busy schedules. We can get swept up into the beauty of the lights that we miss the light of the world. 

This year, choose to do this season differently. Take time as a family to pause, remember, and thank God for the incredible gift of Jesus. 

Be intentional as a family to celebrate this season and enjoy all that Christmas brings with purposeful and fun activities for the whole family! Make family the hallmark of Christmas.

  • 24 days of advent: This devotional, curated by children’s pastors around the country provides simple daily devotionals with responses for each day of December. Take time this season to be intentional and purposeful with your kids.
  • The Ultimate Advent Activity List for Families: This is a fun list of creative ways to spend time together as a family and celebrate this season well!
  • Christmas Extravaganza: December 16, celebrate the holidays with your spiritual family at our Christmas Extravaganza party. Invite friends and family to come decorate cookies, play games, drink cocoa, and wear their most fun Christmas PJs. 
  • Christmas Service: Invite neighbors, friends, and families to our Christmas Service on December 18 at 5 p.m. We will not have Service on December 25. 

We hope you have a Merry Christmas, filled with quality time with family and friends.
