5 Reasons You Need to Be at Glorious

main image

I can't wait to kick off the Christmas season with you guys this Sunday. While there are so many reasons to be a part of Glorious, I've narrowed them down to 5 reasons you need to be here on Sunday...

Start off your Christmas season in a spirit of worship.

With all the school functions, recitals, end of year functions, and shopping going on, it’s easy to lose sight of what Christmas is truly about: the birth, life, resurrection and ultimate return of Christ! Start your season off worshipping God for giving us His Son as the Redeemer of all creation! 

It’s a great opportunity to invite that friend who loves good music but isn’t really “into the whole church thing.”

Got a friend you’d like to invite to church but just don’t think he/she would come? Or perhaps you have invited them and they’ve turned you down with an “I’m just not into the whole church thing”? Glorious is a modern twist on Christmas led by the 11:30 worship band. Invite your friend to enjoy some great Christmas music (“Yeah, sure they’re going to talk about Jesus…this is a church event after all, but don’t worry…it’s not a sermon.”) and some delicious hot cocoa, tea or coffee  afterward (a great opportunity to continue the conversation with your friend).

Christmas songs you can actually sing along to.

Do you find it really annoying when musicians change your Christmas favorites into a strange melody you can’t sing along to? Well, fear not! A “modern twist” on your Christmas favorites doesn’t mean “unfamiliar.” You’ll still be able to sing along...and I hope you will!

Free Childcare!

Yes, you heard that right. We’re providing free childcare for infants through 4 year olds for both performances of Glorious. That means you don’t have to find a babysitter and that friend you’re trying to talk into coming doesn’t have an excuse!

A special guest that’ll blow your mind.

We’re excited to welcome spoken word artist Adan Bean to this year’s Glorious. Not familiar with him or wondering what exactly “spoken word” is? Check him out in this YouTube video.

So, click on over to our Christmas site and download your free tickets...and don't forget to get your free Christmas songs while they're still available (through December 6).

Keeping Christ in Christmas

main image

The Christmas season has officially begun! With all the hustle and bustle of shopping, Christmas parties, traveling and spending time with family, it's easy to get out of your normal routine. Whether you're finishing up a plan to read through the Bible in a year or you're looking for something new to focus your heart and mind on Christ this season, we encourage you to have a plan for connecting with God daily through the Word and prayer. 

An Advent plan that provides daily Bible readings from now through December 25 is a great way to just that. If you're doing a Bible-in-a-year plan, consider using a Advent reading plan with your kids to engage the whole family. 

Find a great list of Advent plans from YouVersion over here or download a free December Family Time calendar (with daily Bible readings and discussion questions) from LifeWay.

What are you doing to keep Christ in Christmas this holiday season?
