Advent Conspiracy

I am so proud to be a part of my church.

This December we are truly seeking to get beyond the consumerism that has hijacked Christmas, to get back to what matters (loving Jesus, loving people), and to give back to those who find themselves in need. I LOVE that the people of Overlake are willing to step up to the plate and to make some changes for the sake of significance. I'd be honored if you'd watch this video, and then decide to join us...

Mike- this is Sarah's friend Kristi....

I think this is not only an awesome video but an inspired idea. I would love for our church to get to that point too. I'm so over consuming Christmas...I want to experience Christmas.

I pray for your simple idea to change people's hearts/lives forever.

Looking forward to spending my first Advent and Christmas at OCC!

Wow! I love you what you and Overlake are doing. Way to BE the Church and lead the charge you in your community. I can already see the good fruit that will be berthed from this. Can't wait to hear all the good reports!
