To others, this is a month for finding good deals and spending money. But for sojourners of faith, we are pointing our hearts to December 25th.

The journey we are on is not shopping or doing more.

Jesus is who we want to see new and fresh this year.

Let's embark on this journey to simplicity -- and unwrap Jesus together.


Will take the challenge to Unwrap Jesus?

Let's begin the journey to look for Jesus fresh this Christmas season together.
