Everybody tunes into Christmas. On December 25, stores close, work shuts down, and everyone stops what they normally would be doing to celebrate.
What, exactly, they're celebrating is a different story. As culture grows more post-Christian, no longer can we assume families know the story of Christ coming to earth as a Baby; if they do know the story, they may see it only as a legend or myth.
What do churches do to redeem the season within their communities?
We create Christmas by offering an outreach where we plop our neighbors right in the middle of first century Bethlehem. We set the scene, costume the characters, and enable them to EXPERIENCE the story. They become part of the narrative of Jesus coming to earth for them. Nothing is quite as personal or powerful.
This book places in your hand the opportunity to dream, pray, and create a Christmas outreach for neighbors and an entire community, no matter the size of your church or budget. We provide the thinking, outline, ideas, online assistance,and encouragement. All you need are some volunteers, a creative budget, and a DIY attitude. There's no need to purchase an expensive kit when you invest in this one book.
