Gift U Give – Vintage Christmas (Session Three)

There is something about Christmas that reminds us of the importance of gifts. There are gifts we give, there are gifts that we have been given, and woven into the very heart and fabric of Christmas is the idea of how important gifts are. One the first Christmas, God gave us a gift unlike any we have ever been given before. However, there is another gift that was and is an important part of any real Christmas celebration.

Christmas “to-do” or “get to?” – Vintage Christmas (Session Two)

Ah, it’s the holiday season! There is a twinkle in the air and there is something amazingly special about this season. Now as the days are getting closer to Christmas, people are facing the weeks ahead with one of two attitudes. The first one is an overwhelming sense of dread, summarized with the phrase “I have too much to do!” and others are moving through it with a sense of excitement, best summarized by the thought “I am so excited about what I get to do.” So… how are you facing Christmas? Are you focused on the “to-do” or the “get to” ? The answer to that question makes all the difference in your celebration.

At Last… Christmas! – Last Christmas (Session Four)

Our Last Christmas series has been taking the two words “last” & “Christmas” and by placing them together in just the right way have forced us to look at how we celebrate Christmas, how we should celebrate it better, how to celebrate in ways that really honor God, and how to make Christmas become an ongoing celebration in our lives. But as we now stand at the Sunday before Christmas we take a closer look at the arrival of Jesus and the moments that occured right after His birth. Christmas has finally arrived and it was certainly not quiet around Bethlehem for those who were willing to listen and worship. At Last…Christmas! He is here!

How Do You Make Christmas Last? – Last Christmas (Session Three)

Many of us have found ourselves during the middle of a Christmas celebration thinking to ourselves, usually in a very happy moment, “Wouldn’t it be great if Christmas could last all year long?”

Now in some circles that question can create havoc in the space time continuum but in a very practical sense..the community, the festiveness, the joy, the conversation, the giving, the spirit, the attitudes that often accompany the season are what we wish we could maintain all year. So today, in our Last Christmas series we flip-flop the two words and ask the question… How Do You Make Christmas Last? and we return to the ancient city of Bethlehem on a not-so-silent night for a close look at the Christmas event.

It’s Going To Be OK – Jingle All The Way (Session 4)

Christmas is here! Where has the time gone? It seems like just yesterday we climbed on board our sled and starting dashing through December…and now here we are…arriving at Christmas. Along the way on our ride through Luke 2 we have discovered some of the sounds of Christmas that we don’t usually focus on. Today we listen in on conversations that you know were happening in the stable on that first Christmas. These conversations are reminders to us that the lessons we learn on Christmas day can change our lives every day.
