4 Wild and Crazy Christmas Services

Kent Shaffer —  January 10, 2008

Some churches like to go all out on their Christmas services. Usually, the goal is to create a “Wow!” experience for the people who rarely come to church as well as those who have never been. And hopefully, this “Wow!” experience will get them to come back and start attending more regularly. Here are four churches that put on quite a show for Christmas 2007.

#1 – Willow Creek Community Church (South Barrington, IL) – “Imagine Christmas”
