Christmas isn’t just simply another holiday – it is the most important and blessed of all holidays. It is that time of the year when we celebrate and rejoice in the birthday of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Here in Nazareth, it is a joyous and anointed time, and we are reminded that Jesus is the Reason for the Season. To that end, we also realize that we have a great responsibility to share that Good News with the people of Israel.
Through our Christmas projects we aim to accomplish just that. During the annual Christmas Day parade, we will be distributing more than 3000 children’s gift packs to the multitudes of families attending the parade in Nazareth. In addition, we will be distributing more than 150 food baskets to the poor Jewish and Muslim Nazareth and Haifa, sharing the Gospel message and the true meaning of Christmas.
During the Christmas Day Parade in Nazareth, we will be decorating our church van with scriptures and images that celebrate Jesus as the Reason for the Season. The scriptures that we will highlighting on the vehicle can be seen below on the special stickers we had designed, and comes from Luke 2:13-14:
Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.
We will also have figures of Angelic messengers on the four corners of the vehicle to represent the Gospel message going out to the four corners of the church earth. It is going to be a wonderful time of sharing the Gospel and blessing the people of Nazareth with the Christmas message!
To stand with us in proclaiming Jesus as the Reason for the Season here in Israel this Christmas, please prayerfully consider supporting our project with your donation. Thank you and Merry Christmas!
