My kids saw a Christmas commercial on TV the other night, and all of them screamed out loud, “It’s not even Thanksgiving yet! Why are these people talking about Christmas?!” I’ll be honest, it was a proud dad moment. Because the reality is, this might be one of the most controversial topics in the world today. When is it really acceptable to start celebrating Christmas?
If you couldn’t tell based on the pride I felt in my kids’ proper response to this all-important matter, I am firmly in the “after Thanksgiving” camp. But like it or not, the world around us is starting to turn its attention toward Christmas. So I figured I’d take a moment to talk Christmas as well.
We’re incredibly excited to announce that we’ll be hosting THREE services to celebrate Christmas this year at Midcurrent. In keeping with our Christmas Eve Eve tradition, we’ll host two services on Saturday, December 23 at 4:00pm and 6:00pm and one identical service on Sunday, December 24 at 9:00am only.
I tell you this now so that you can build Christmas at Midcurrent into any plans you are making this year with friends and family.
We believe the good news of Christmas is one of the greatest stories we get to tell, and we also believe that this year we will have the opportunity to share it with more people than ever before in the history of our church. And if that is going to happen, we’ll need as many of you as possible to partner with us. If they have not yet, our staff will soon be sending out invitations for you to serve on one of our teams for Christmas at Midcurrent. And our prayer is that you could sit in one service and volunteer in another. Together, we believe we can be the greatest host for every guest who walks through our doors this Christmas.
We’ll roll out more details for Christmas at Midcurrent in the coming weeks. But for now, please make note of the exciting weekend we have planned.
12/23 @ 4:00pm and 6:00pm
12/24 @ 9:00am
In the meantime, I’m closing out our series Winning the War in Your Mind this Sunday, and I’d love to see you there!
