Simply Having A Wonderful Christmastime?

Simply having a Wonderful Christmastime? Is that even possible? I remember Tommy Hargrove, a former pastor I served with,  preach a sermon on Christmas Eve about keeping it simple for the Christmas Holiday Season. It was a memorable sermon, so I thought it timely to share it with you today.

Keep Simple Plans
There's a lot going on in all of our lives. Do your best to fight against the pressure to fill every available second with high energy activities and energy draining plans. What would it look like for your home to have multiple nights in a row that looked similar to one another? Consistency during stressful seasons can definitely be your ally!

Have Simple Moments 
There's a lot of incredible experiences you could have with the family and friends that are closest to you this year. But before you put too much pressure on yourself and wear yourself out… just remember that the simple moments make the sweetest memories.  

Make Simple Decisions
I don't have to tell you that our world is a very topsy-turvey place right now. Give yourself the freedom to press "pause" on major decisions right now if you can, and just keep things as basic as you can.  Also remember, that every long journey happens one small step, one simple decision at a time. 

My prayer is that you can have a Simple and Wonderful Christmastime this year. A time where you are reminded of the beauty and wonder of the nativity story. Where the maker of the universe humbled himself to be born in human flesh in a unimportant stable filled with hay. …and they called his name Emmanuel, which is translated "God with us."

If you would like to join us, we would love to see you this coming Sunday afternoon for a simple 30 minute presentation of this miraculous nativity story. Just register for a slot on our website at and we will be ready for you! Consider yourself invited! May it be a great start to the most wonderful time of the year!
