Meaningful gifts for Christmas
Even in another year of such uncertainty and constant change, I’m thankful I can count on something that is constant: the hope we have in Jesus.
As Christmas draws near, it’s my prayer that you and your family are also able to look forward in hopeful anticipation of ever-better days ahead – that this Christmas season promises new freedom to go where you will and gather with those you love. And I pray that you’ll find great joy in your celebration of the birth of our Lord.
To help celebrate the Christmas season and to share God’s love with those around you, I’d like to tell you about our 2021 Christmas catalogue. While I would love to put a spotlight on every item in this catalogue, I want to highlight a select few for you today.
