Join the Conspiracy!

Join us at Girdwood Chapel during the Advent season (Dec. 1-25) to learn more about this "Christian conspiracy" to "take back" Christmas from consumerism that some say has stolen the soul of Christmas.

Those who take a stand against consumerism will join thousands of other Christians who are choosing to make Christmas what it should be -- a joyous celebration of Jesus' birth, not a retail circus.  We will be challenged during this time to substitute compassion for consumerism by practicing four simple, but powerful, countercultural concepts:

• Worship Fully - Because Christmas begins and ends with Jesus!
• Spend Less - and free your resources for things that truly matter.
• Give More - of your presence (not presents): your hands, your words, your time, your heart.
• Love All - the poor, the forgotten, the marginalized, the sick, in ways that make a difference
