Merry Christmas!

We know, it’s not Christmas just yet. In fact as of October 5, 2015, Christmas is 79 days away. Depending on your personality and tradition, the 79 days might seem far away or really close (maybe even too close).

For children’s and family ministry leaders, along with the rest of your church staff, Christmas is one of the most busy times of the church calendar. The season often brings extra programs, musicals, services, events, concerts, sets, decorations, and celebrations.

And somewhere in there, we celebrate the birth of Christ.

This month on the Cory Center blog, we will look at Christmas.  We’ll encourage you, point you to resources, and hopefully give you a chance to get ahead of the Christmas busyness so you can focus and lead well.
