The Reason for the (Christmas) Season

Hi there! This is Diane. I turned on the radio this week and was reminded with Christmas music on Nov. 1 — the day after Halloween! — that Christmas is just around the corner. Poor Thanksgiving Day seems to get overlooked as we focus on the coming Christmas shopping season and all of the “stuff” that surrounds Dec. 25.

Here at Reach Out, we are going to take a look at the real “Purpose of Christmas,” through a three-week class that helps explain why we celebrate Christmas and how it can change our lives forever.  We will be meeting on Tuesday afternoons, starting November 29, to watch a DVD lesson by Pastor Rick Warren, then discuss what was presented. We should be done in an hour. Join us if you can. For our clients, you can earn Baby Bucks for attending, plus a special bonus if you come to all three sessions. Just let us know ahead of time that you would like to attend.

And to celebrate Thanksgiving, we would like to show our clients how thankful we are for you. We will be having a Thanksgiving Blessings “sale” on November 21-23 (Monday through Wednesday, normal operating hours), with free stuff, sale stuff and door prize drawings. Stop on by!

And if I don’t see you beforehand, Merry Christmas!
