Celebrating Christmas

This is one of my very favorite times of year. Yes, it is busy. And at times a bit crazy.

But I love it.

We have incredible opportunity to reach out into our communities and share the message of Christ’s love for them. It is a time when people are quite receptive to invitations from their friends to church.

I love seeing all of the new faces. I love watching our team seize that opportunity in a creative, powerful way. I just love it.

We will be doing 15 services at our 4 campuses in town. (If you live in Vegas, make sure to click here for service times and directions.) And services will run all day Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at our Online Campuses. I hear very exciting musical rumors, but won’t give it away. It is going to be great … and I’m praying that God will move in a huge way and bring people to Himself.

What are your Christmas services like? I would love to hear about the creative things your church is doing.

Working Weekends

I’m wondering: If you work or lead in a church, how many services do you attend? And how do you keep your kids from being overloaded?

 

The kids and I attend two services on Saturday night. But they don’t want to turn around and head back on Sunday morning. I’ve struggled with this a bit. I hate missing the things that are going on at church. I’m not complaining about sleeping in on Sunday … that is great. But I missed going and interacting with everyone on Sundays. Now the answer just dropped in my lap. Now that we have our Online Campus, I can lay in bed in my PJs while the kids are sleeping or watching Sponge Bob, and visit with people and attend services to my heart’s content. I love it.

 

What do you do? How do you balance the kids and busy weekends?
