Are you frustrated with how fat Christmas has become? It’s too fat on our calendars, with way too many events. It’s too fat on our wallets, with all of those gifts we have to buy. And let’s face it: our waistlines don’t do too well over Christmas either. In the midst of the chaos of the Christmas season, we tend to forget the most important thing, the birth of Jesus.
 
And who is the worst culprit of them all? Santa, the man who flies around giving our kids too many gifts and eating about 6 billion cookies in one night. But what if Santa wasn’t the problem but the solution? You may not know this, but Santa started off as a skinny pastor named Nick who was known for helping children in need. So this Christmas, we invite you to celebrate Skinny Santa with us.
 
On Sundays leading up to Christmas, come join us as we take the Skinny Santa Challenge.
 
First, we Share Skinny, by telling the story of the historical St. Nick and how he points us to Jesus. We’ll be sharing Santa’s story before he got to the North Pole, and leaving his story once he got to there in the hands of the parents.
 
Second, we Go Skinny on gifts for each other so that we can help out a child in needfor Christmas.
 
Third, we will challenge you to Live Skinny on an ongoing basis so that you can permanently help a child in need in ways such as mentoring, child sponsorship, or even adoption.
 
Are you with us? Join us on Sundays as we bring skinny back to Christmas! For more information check out: skinnysanta.org.
