At Christmas we work really hard to get people to attend the events we put on, but just getting people to attend an event matters little if we do not introduce them to the reason for Christmas—Jesus.
In addition to events, we often send out personal, church and ministry Christmas letters, but again, if we don’t share with people the real joy of Christmas—Jesus and the salvation He gives us—our Christmas message is incomplete.
This Christmas publication here will help solve both of those challenges. It uses the favorite hymn, “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” as an introduction to why Jesus came at Christmas and invites people to respond to him.
The piece to your right is a free PDF of the piece along with the page described below as a second page of the PDF. Additional options are available for Effective Church Communication Members and are shown later in this article.
An additional resources for faith exploration
Many people today, know little about the background of Christmas or little about Jesus. Because of that you may want to print on the back of the handout the list that gives websites where people can explore the Christian faith in depth.
Becoming a Christian is not a decision not to be taken lightly and this sheet encourages careful exploration of the facts before a decision is made.
