Christmas is such an important time of year for your church. Think of the amount of people who check out church this time of year who normally wouldn’t otherwise darken the door of one.  It’s a huge opportunity to connect with new people. 

With December now here, most church families have already planned various Christmas events and services …but maybe there’s something special you could still add this year without a lot of planning or budget. 

Over at the Vanderbloemen blog, we found some great ideas like this one:

Who doesn’t love hot chocolate or apple cider? Get a group together and hand out cups of hot chocolate at a large local event. Maybe it’s a Christmas tree lighting ceremony or an annual parade. This is a great chance to meet people in your community, and it's an introduction opportunity to give them an invitation to your annual Christmas Eve service!
