We’re deep into the fall season already. Even as we see the leaves fall to the ground and the weather begin to cool, I’m reminded of one thing that never changes: 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 want to tell you about our 2022 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.


Emmanuel is a 25-day invitation to rejoice in the everlasting fellowship and hope God extended to us on the day of his Son’s birth, guiding us to realize that having God with us all year long is the most incredible Christmas gift.
