December Weekend Events: Merry CHRISTmas! 12/23-25

appurgent_468x60-animation

Merry CHRISTmas to everyone! With Christmas being only a few days away, even during the hustle and bustle, let’s not forget to celebrate the “Real Reason For The Season”, that being that Jesus was born, sent down from his Father above to save our world. I always want to be thankful and grateful for my salvation and that I have a hope and a future of what is planned for me!

Christmas is not all about Santa, Elves, Gifts, Trees, etc. It is about the Birth of a Savior sent to save us all. It’s about a Savior who is called the Christ, and without Christ, there would be no Christmas! And to think, we all can know Him personally! All you have to do is Believe asking Him into your heart.

Again, as you finish out your shopping and wrap gifts, have fun with weekend Christmas events, entertain family and friends, it is the CHRIST in Christmas that makes this season bright!

Have a wonderfully Blessed Christmas and Holiday Season!
