    Be A Hope-Dealer This Weekend At The Branch!

    “Christmas And Your Future” is next in our Christmas Time series! Having hope plays a huge role if you’re taking action to change your future. Hope’s name is Jesus. But what does that really mean practically when it comes to taking action? Come with friends in tow! 

    Speaking of the future, don’t forget the great opportunity we have on both campuses to provide Christmas for hundreds of families in need this coming Saturday from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm!  We need help wrapping gifts, sacking Christmas hunger, and delivering Christmas.  It’s okay if you can’t be there for the whole time!  We’ll be wrapping and sacking Christmas hunger in the first few hours, and delivering Christmas toward the latter part of the time. 

    Finally, don’t forget our six different opportunities to experience a Christmas Candlelight service next week.  I’ll be bringing a brief message (in person) in each service, and our services will feature Christmas carols, communion, candles, and glow sticks for our younger children and toddlers.  Please note our special service times since Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday! For those traveling Christmas weekend who don’t want to miss a Branch Candlelight service, don’t forget our first one is Thursday night, December 21st! For times at each location, go here.

    Grace and Peace,

    See You Thursday or Sunday!

    Christmas at The Branch In Full Swing!

    Are you facing less-than-ideal circumstances this Christmas? Or do you have a tendency to be distracted so much this time of year that you miss the Light in the midst of all the lights and the Gift in the midst of all the gifts?

    Christmas Time

    We kicked off our Christmas Time series this past weekend and explored how the coming of Jesus makes a difference in how we relate to our past. This weekend’s message will explore the difference it makes in regard to how we relate to circumstances in the present. Come with guests in tow!

    Christmas “GO”

    We have an awesome opportunity on both campuses to make an impact on families in need this Christmas. On December 16th, from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, we’ll be Sacking Christmas Hunger, as well as wrapping and delivering Christmas gifts for hundreds of children around our campuses.  You may not be able to come for the whole time, so come and wrap or come and help with the delivery. I often hear parents speak about wanting to engage their children in a family activity that will bless others less fortunate. This is a great opportunity. Come to your campus and join in the fun while blessing others!

    Christmas Candlelight Services

    We have six different options for Christmas Candlelight services, with one on Thursday night, December 21st, and five across our two campuses all day Sunday, December 24th. Check out the schedule here and make your plans with your family and friends!

    Christmas And Time

    We’re headed into a time of year when the name of Jesus is invoked in our culture more than any other time of year. Scripture counsels us to “make the most of every opportunity” (Colossians 4:5), and Christmas Time is a fabulous opportunity

    And “Christmas Time” happens to be the title of our Christmas series this year! The coming of Jesus has huge implications for how we relate to time – our past, our present, and our future!  If you have someone in your network of relationships or sphere of influence who you’ve been trying to draw closer to Jesus, this is a custom-made opportunity for you!

    Let’s work together to help some people encounter Jesus this month! Let’s pray and invite. We have nothing to lose compared to what they have to gain--everything.

    PLANNING FOR OUR CHRISTMAS CANDLELIGHT SERVICES AT THE BRANCH!

    This year Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday, which calls for us to adjust our approach for our Candlelight services.  All services on that Sunday will be Candlelight services with communion.  Also, I’ll be sharing the message in person in all services. The schedule for that Sunday, December 24th, will be:

    FB Campus – 9:00 am and 6:00 pm

    VR Campus – 11:00 am, 2:00 pm, and 5:00 pm

    Our first Christmas Candlelight service that week will be on Thursday night, December 21st, at the VR Campus at 7:00 pm.  If you are going out of town that weekend but would love to experience a Branch Christmas Candlelight service, that Thursday night would be perfect!

    Make your plans now to bring family and friends to one of our six Candlelight services!

    HAVE YOU SEEN “THE DRAGON KING” YET?

    Our very own Tim Scott has just released his first book, and it’s already been the subject of fabulous reviews! I had the privilege of working alongside Tim the last eight years. He’s such a gifted storyteller and writer. This book would be a fabulous read for the whole family over the holidays. If you’re looking for a conversation starter with your kids in regard to matters such as courage and wisdom, this is for you!  You can check it out here.

    Also, this coming Saturday from 3-4:30 at our Farmers Branch Campus, there will be a launch party for “The Dragon King,” complete with a couple of fun interactive activities for kids and the reading of a chapter by Tim Scott. Everyone is welcome. I’m thrilled for Tim and for the work this book will do in the years to come!

    See you Thursday or Sunday!

    Grace and Peace,

    Chris
