FAT!!! I don’t know if you’ve been having the same problem I’ve been having, but when it’s 92 degrees outside, it doesn’t matter how loud you crank up the Christmas Music, it’s extremely hard to get into the Christmas mood. And when it’s hard to get in the Christmas mood, it’s hard to plan for Christmas.
This year at our church, we really trying to come up with something very different from what’s been done here in the past. We feel like Christmas gives us this opportunity that we don’t have any other time of the year. Even Easter doesn’t give us this opportunity. We feel that people are more willing to accept something a a little more performance oriented, and at the same time there are way more songs the the non-churched know at Christmas time, so we also have the opportunity to get them involved.
In our thinking, I started doing some research to try and find out what other churches are going for Christmas this year. The only ideas I found were last years ideas. Yes, many of them are still good, but wouldn’t it be great if we could all share our ideas for this year, and help each other sharpen those ideas BEFORE we do them.
So, that’s what this post is about. We would love to hear what you’re doing. You can comment on this post with your ideas and we’ll start sharing them this way. Fred McKinnon has also offered to put this topic up over on The Worship Community. I’ll get the direct link in this post as soon as he does so.
Thanks for sharing and helping us all do Christmas better this year.
