Tables of Christmas 1

Here it is October, and we are beginning to talk about Christmas.  I would like to share my experience of attending my first Tables of Christmas event as someone who was relatively new to LifePoint Church.  Quite honestly, I didn't know what to expect. 

I was invited by a long-time member of the church who told me there would be decorated tables, cheesecake, coffee, and a speaker who would be sharing the gospel.  It sounded like fun and I was excited to meet other women at church. And I love cheesecake! 

The evening of the event I arrived at church to see the Worship Center transformed.  There were over 30 large round tables uniquely decorated by women within the church, ranging in themes from Christmas memories to family heirloom decorations to the beauty and majesty described in Revelation.  The event began with time to walk around and look at the tables, visit with friends, and meet new people.   Then the cheesecake came out.  They are not messing around!  The big slices of cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory) came in a variety of flavors and were all delicious. 

While sitting at my table, I was blessed by a time of singing and fellowship. Then the speaker shared the touching story of her engagement and marriage to her husband. Learn more about their story here. (http://ianandlarissa.com/).  The entire event was such a blessing to me.

If you are new to LifePoint, I would encourage you to buy a ticket to Tables of Christmas. Better yet, invite a friend or two for this special Christmas tradition. You don't have to be invited in order to attend. This year's speaker will be Laura Story, singer, song writer and author. http://laurastorymusic.com/
For those of you who are more familiar with Tables of Christmas, be sure to invite someone who is new to our church and may not be comfortable 'going on her own'.  Please don't assume that everyone will know what the event is about.

We are so blessed to have a healthy and growing church, and that means there are many new faces.  It would be a shame for women to read on a blogpost in January what fun Tables of Christmas was, and they had missed it.
Blessings to you, and Merry Christmas!
