Ultimate Christmas Party

Telling the TRUE meaning of Christmas!

What do unchurched children know about Christmas?

They are learning that Christmas is all about shopping, Santa Claus, TV specials, decorations, parties, and gifts. As "Christmas" is replaced with "Holiday" in schools and stores, the TRUE meaning of Christmas is left out!

This year, 80% of children in America will not attend any church. How will they hear about God's love through his Son Jesus Christ?

Child Evangelism Fellowship® (CEF®) has initiated an exciting, church partnership called Christmas Across America. The objective is to work hand-in-hand with local churches to reach 100,000 children nationally with the good news of Jesus through the Ultimate Christmas Party.

CEF has committed to provide FREE materials, training and coordination support to any church or organization who will field a 4-person team to teach an Ultimate Christmas Party.
Besides having a Christmas party for your churched kids,
won't YOU host an Ultimate Christmas Party to reach

the unchurched kids of your community?
Church teams of 4 can go outside church walls to host a fun, exciting party for kids, while teaching them about Jesus, too. Involve your youth group as a local mission effort, showing them by example how to serve "the least of these."
A great location for an Ultimate Christmas Party is your neighborhood elementary school! CEF staff will assist your team in planning an after school party as well as coordinating school facility use and student invitations. What might happen if God's people threw an Ultimate Christmas Party in each of the 93 elementary schools here on the Peninsula?
Go to www.cefpeninsula.com/party to view a short, 70-second video about the Ultimate Christmas Party and learn about church and individual participation. Also, sign up for the free training coming up soon in November!

Tom Boor, with CEF, is available to present to interested groups. Contact him at 757-871-6382 or tom.boor@mission4-14.com for all questions.
