The Christmas Spirit by Danae Lay

The Christmas season, through the eyes of a child, is nothing short of spectacular. Argyle UMC hosts it’s Breakfast in Bethlehem each December to celebrate the birth of Jesus and to welcome the community with open arms (and bacon).

During our celebration this year, we had more than 60 adult volunteers who gave their time, love, donations and skills to this event. These people helped to set up, run and tear down every tiny detail so that they could share the love of Jesus Christ with families within our church and community and to share with each person who joined us that day the story of how the Messiah was born. 

We also had over 40 youth volunteers during this event who got up early on a Saturday, dressed in costumes and gave their best performances so that our younger children could experience the Christmas story first hand!

These volunteers not only entertained and fed children for two hours on Saturday, but they showed them the wondrous and true meaning of Christmas. It is so exciting to witness the congregation of Argyle UMC is using it’s giftedness and working together to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
