WORSHIP FULLY: Christmas is all about Jesus. We’ll worship Him with our hearts, minds, and actions!
SPEND LESS: We’ll spend a little less on ourselves and use the money we saved to help others this Christmas.
GIVE MORE: We’ll give more of ourselves and spend time with the people we love.
LOVE ALL: Jesus came for all people, including us. We’ll love and serve all people, as a reminder of how much God loves us.
DEC 12: GIVE MORE
We’ll give more of ourselves and spend time with the people we love.
God showed love for us by sending the person of Jesus on the first Christmas and we can let our friends and family know how much we love them by spending time with them. We can do this by giving more of ourselves by making homemade gifts, planning fun activities to do together and making new traditions.
For God so loved the world that He gave us His one and only Son. John 3:16
Dear Jesus, I want to make new special memories this Christmas with my friends and family. Thank you for loving me and being our special gift from God. Amen
