When God expressed His love for the world, He gave a person, a relationship. What if we chose to spend less money on gifts that we will forget in six months, and gave creative gifts of time, special experiences, or relationship? What if we redirected our spending to something more meaningful?

This year, instead of purchasing just any-old-gift gift, give a gift that is truly meaningful because you took time to think about your loved one.

For example, do you know someone who would appreciate words of encouragement? This year, instead of sending a generic Christmas card, make a sound bite of words of encouragement for the recipient’s phone or computer.

Use this helpful gift guide to help you think about what your loved one would really appreciate this Christmas.

Act Local: Share gifts of time and resources with those in our community. At the Impact Tree in the Atrium, find opportunities available for individuals, families and life groups. All the information you need will be on the cards by the Tree. Take a card – put an ornament on the tree.

Give Global: On Sunday, December 13 during services, we'll take up an Advent Conspiracy offering (a direct result of spending less) to give towards clean water projects and wheelchair needs in Honduras, Kenya and Romania. If you won’t be able to join us at services on that day but still want to participate, just write "Advent" in the memo of your check and drop it in any of the offering boxes.
