Carols are playing…my house is decorated…”Joy to the World” adorns my mantel…shopping was supposed to be finished, but isn’t…the tree is up and I’m in the Christmas spirit! How about you? Are you feeling it?
In my book, it truly is the most wonderful time of the year and there’s a lot to do, but today, I’m excited to share an event that is sure to fill you with Christmas spirit, delight your whole family…and it’s FREE!
Oh and it also lasts for 4 days so you don’t have to miss it.
It’s A Merry Music City Christmas and y’all are invited to the Nashville Campus of Cross Point Community Church to sled down hills of real snow, roast marshmallows over an open fire, sip hot cocoa, sing songs, ride the Polar Express and enjoy a spectacular show of live music featuring some of Nashville’s best artists every night beginning on December 9 – 12. You can find all details here.
It’s Cross Point’s gift to Middle Tennessee and they want you to come!
This is Pete Wilson’s (Pastor Pete) inspired idea. Pete and his wife, Brandi, LOVE Christmas and when Cross Point was small they used to host an Open House for everyone in the church at their home! It’s true – at their home! But the the church grew quickly and eventually they had to host the same party for a week and they did it twice each day. Apparently their neighbors started to get upset at the traffic!
So in true Pete fashion he imagined a bigger event – a gift to Middle Tennessee “because they’ve been so good to us.” The sole purpose is to share Christmas with the community and show the true heart of Cross Point. Pete told me, “I wanted to see families smile together and create a true Christmas experience for EVERYONE!”
He promises snow and lots of it, because it’s the one thing Pete missed growing up in Nashville. Y’all know in Tennessee there aren’t very many white Christmases, so Cross Point has created one.
From one idea three years ago, grew this ginormous gift to Middle Tennessee. Anyone and everyone is invited to join in the Christmas celebration.
I sat down with Pete earlier this week and we covered a lot of topics.
More on keeping Christmas real next week. You won’t want to miss it, but today it’s it’s all about
A Merry Music City Christmas!
This is year 3 and I’m guessing it gets bigger and better every year. Here, take a peek…
I have never been to A Merry Music City Christmas and I’m so excited to see it all come to life. I know first hand the magic that happens every Sunday so I can only imagine what this will be like.
This is just one more reason why I love Cross Point…they give back and they do it all the time in the most amazing ways. I also love a church who’s mission statement says…
“Everyone’s Welcome. Nobody’s Perfect. Anything’s Possible.”
It’s a new message for me and it speaks to my heart.
I’m inviting y’all to come to A Merry Music City Christmas and experience the blessings and joy of the Christmas season. My husband and I are volunteering Wednesday night and we’d love to say hello!
Stay tuned for Pete’s thoughts on how to keep Christmas in Christmas.
