Just a quick email to encourage you to MAKE IT A PRIORITY to be at NLC this weekend! I’m going to be going toe-to-toe with "Facebook friending" and I think God is going to do a great work in our lives. I know there are Christmas parties, shopping, plays and MILLIONS of other reasons to make church optional, but I want to encourage you to not lose sight of what’s BEST! Let’s not do all the good things that surround us during Christmas and leave out the BEST thing: Jesus...the entire reason for this season. I pray that your heart is finding peace in an often very un-peaceful season. Jesus loves you, He has plans for you, He desires to know you, He is for you, and in this season of commercialism, let’s keep Jesus at the center! This is also a GREAT time of year to invite friends and family to church - the greatest gift you could ever give someone you know is the invitation that leads them to a life of freedom, hope, and love in Christ! Love you and all and consider it a blessing to do life with you!
PS: Next weekend is Christmas at NLC followed by Christmas Eve at NLC. Our team has worked tirelessly and I believe it will be the most unforgettable and powerful Christmas experience to date! We have traditional settings and traditional songs with current excitement! It’s going to be amazing and I’ve heard there may be a marching band :)
