December 6, 2021

As we push back from the Thanksgiving table and turn our attention toward Christmas, many of us will be filled with joy and eager anticipation for all that’s in store. The Christmas season allows us the chance to reflect on the events of the past year and all the ways God has been good to us. So naturally there’s no better time to put the greatest commandment into practice and love our neighbors. 

Ministry leaders – you can use these ideas as the basis for outreach or fellowship opportunities! Not sure where to begin? In the spirit of “The 12 Days of Christmas”, here are 12 ways you can show love to the people around you.

  1. Bring baked goods to your local First Responders
  2. Make blessing bags for the homeless
