Ready or Not, Christmas Is Upon Us

Behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born…Christ the Lord. (Luke 2)

Ready or not Christmas is upon us! Much like it was a little over 2,000 years ago, ready or not, the Christ child was coming. I would like to think that more often than not, we are ready – eager even – for Jesus and this exciting time of year. There is so much fun to be had, so much love to be shared, so much wonder, grace, and joy to be remembered and lived all over again. And it means so much more when we enjoy it all together! (I can speak from a place of realization as I just hung up from talking to my Pawpaw and realized that once again we will not be together this Christmas, but I can also speak from a place of gratitude as I am thankful that, though far from my North Carolina-Alaska family, I am surrounded by my husband, children, friends, and MPC family! This year, like the last 15 Christmases, will still be full of all that makes Christmas Christmas! Most importantly, the reason for the season remains the same no matter where we are – “For unto (us) is born…Christ the Lord.”

This Christmas, R.O.C.K. Point Kids’ Ministry would like to invite you to be a part of two really great events…

Christmas Keepsakes: Nursery, Preschool, and K-2nd grade families come enjoy cookies, candy, and chocolate milk while you make a Christmas Keepsake with your children! Register online for this fun memory making event! (Please register again; the registration for the Fall Keepsake is no longer valid.)

Sunday mornings, R.O.C.K. Point Kids’ Ministries presents Christmas At The Movies for your K-5th graders! Join us as we talk through some of the Christmas classics and discover what eternal truths lie within them. We will enjoy movie clips, interactive Bible lessons, Christmas carols, crafts, and popcorn! Invite your friends and family and join us at 9 and 10:45 the next two Sundays.

Take time to ENJOY this time of year with your children; they are some of the best reminders we have of what Jesus brought to the world that night all those years ago…wonder, excitement, joy, belief, hope!

R.O.C.K. Point Ministries desires to come alongside parents to help kids learn to Rely On Christ the King daily. Check out our Family Ministries page for more information.
