Can you believe Christmas is only a few weeks away? We hope you and your family are loving this holiday season.

Here are a few things coming up in our ministry . . .

ADD THE DATE: Joy to the Neighborhood
In just a few weeks, we’ll be encouraging teenagers to focus on others (instead of themselves) this Christmas with a service project. Get all the details on our website.

THIS CHRISTMAS: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON CHRISTMAS

When we think about Christmas, a few things probably come to mind: the Christmas presents (of course), the decorations, the family get-togethers, and . . . oh yeah, maybe even Jesus. In this series, you’ll challenge students to make this Christmas the best one yet — one where they give generously, examine their hearts, value their families, and allow Jesus to change them from the inside out.

If you’ve got $20 left in your Christmas budget, we’ve got an idea. Get yourself a little something, like the book The Grown-Up’s Guide to Teenage Humans, by Josh Shipp. And if you’ve got $10 more, you might always want to grab Josh’s book The Teen’s Guide to World Domination for your teenager.
