Every Christmas commercial has one thing in common — a promise. The perfect film set, the best looking family of actors, and just the right Christmas instrumental to tug on our heart strings. The subtle promise is that the product or service being advertised is the key to the perfect Christmas. We know those commercials are over-promising. But ironically, they are also under-promising.
The actual Christmas story of Jesus promises us that everything will be made perfect! And so whether life going into this Christmas season is awesome or altogether miserable, join us as we recover the promise of true hope and joy this Christmas.

Invite Someone to Church!
Christmas is the perfect time to invite friends and family to hear the good news of Jesus Christ. That's why we've provided a digital image you can use to text, post, tweet, snap, etc. to invite others to church. Simply hold your finger down on this digital invitation to save to your phone (or right click on your computer). We, also, have business card-sized invitations you can pick up at the Welcome Center at church to hand out. Grab as many as you need. Give one to your favorite barista, stick one in your Christmas cards, etc.
