This Sunday, December 2, Santa Claus will be at Graystone Church to take pictures with your kids or your entire family. Justin Wojtczak from 375 Photography will be taking professional pictures for FREE. Why are we doing this? We are doing it as a service to our Graystone families and our community. Who wants to dress up the kids, load them in the SUV/swagger wagon, drive to mall, stand in a long line and pay high dollar for a picture with Santa? Not me.
Now, I realize that Santa is not real. And I know that Christmas is about Jesus and not Santa. And there are families at Graystone who do not “play Santa” for various reasons…some spiritual. So, if you and your family do not want to participate, I completely understand. Santa will be set up in the corner of the lobby, so you and your family can avoid old Saint Nick if you want to.
This is a great opportunity to invite our friends and family to church. Remember, if you don’t understand why we do some things at Graystone, 9 times out of 10, we are doing it to reach people for Jesus Christ. You may have a friend, coworker, family member or neighbor who is like me…he doesn’t want to drive to the mall, stand in line, and pay high dollar to have his kids picture taken with Santa. So, bring him to Graystone Church this Sunday and his kids can get their picture taken with Santa for FREE. And he can hear the good news about Jesus Christ, our Savior.
