Making Christmas special in worship leading is important, because at this time more than others people come to church. OK, Christmas is special, but if we as worship leaders do what we do effectively, this could be one of the greatest times for evangelism and salvation in the year.
You Can Have Fun Making Christmas Special
Christmas does not need to be burdensome. If you start early and prepare well, you can have fun making Christmas special, even though you tend to use songs only at this time of the year.
Preparing your Christmas presentation does take time, and usually a little more effort, but the rewards can be huge. Most churches see a massive influx of non-believers at this time of year, and you have the incredible privilege and honour of being able to minister to them and share the gospel with them in a way you could never do any other way!
And that is the great thing about Christmas, and indeed leading worship at Christmas. You have access to p[eople who would not otherwise be going to church, you also have the opportunity to use some very powerful and compelling Christmas songs, many of which contain gospel influences. Plus, you can put together a presentation that is not only making Christmas special, but is also fun to watch, fun to be a part of and challenging to the congregation.
Christmas really is a special time, and you can have fun and be challenged yourself by making Christmas special this year. Darin and Erick talk about this and discuss fantastic ways you can make a real difference, and use this fabulous opportunity to reach out in hope to people who are growing more and more disillusioned with the modern, selfish and prejudiced world.
