The most wonderful time of year is right around the corner! It seems we blink and it’s Christmas again. Which is exciting and inspiring but can be a little overwhelming at the same time, especially if you’re a pastor who is trying to come up with another idea for your Christmas sermon. But rather than worry about what you will preach concerning Jesus’ birth, start by praying about what God wants to share with your congregation. Then, glance through the sermon ideas below for even more inspiration.
Generosity is a product of our desire to love and be kind to others, especially those in need. Because God calls us to be generous, it’s important that we share about why we give, which can help more people desire to participate. And when you make giving easy, they will have every opportunity to do so.

Cooler weather means the holidays are just on the horizon. That also means it’s time to start planning all the fun Christmas festivities your church will be doing. Though churches are open this year, you may still be considering hosting an online church service. We think this is a great idea because you can engage even more people with the gospel this holiday season.
Hosting harvest festivals at your church can be a fun and strategic way to provide a safe place for kids of all ages to come and have fun. It is also a great alternative to celebrating Halloween for those churches who would rather steer away from any Halloween party. Another great aspect of hosting a harvest festival is the opportunity for outreach within the community.
As the weather turns colder and the leaves change color, the holiday season is fast approaching. Your church teams may be brainstorming fall festivals, Thanksgiving sermons, and gearing up for Christmas.
Church events are a powerful way to bring in new visitors and help current members to engage in community. They connect people and further the message of the gospel in methods outside of Sunday service. Many people want to dig deeper into community but they’re not sure how. Hosting events at your church can provide this unity and togetherness.
Churches have taken to the internet to share the important message of the gospel, and social media is an incredible tool to communicate and engage with your congregation. Here is a rundown of the most popular social media sites that your church can use to engage and grow an audience in 2021:
Creating a website that is full of Gospel-centered content is vital to any church. People often head to Christian websites to glean from the information provided. They want to learn, and they want to grow. What if you could give the people what they want by enhancing your website to be more intentional and transparent? One way to make this happen is through using videos on your church website.
The topic of giving can often be a difficult one for many pastors and churches. You don’t want to come off as pushy or demanding or fall into the category that many people place on the Church. “They only want my money.”
It’s a desire of most churches to grow in attendance. Not simply because they want higher numbers, but because the more people who are attending church, the more who have the opportunity to receive the gospel, connect with other believers, and grow in their relationship with God.
