The world would have you think that Christmas is all about gifts, Santa, lights, trees, parties, family dinners, etc... And while a lot of joy at Christmas centers around sharing gifts, decorating trees, and enjoying fellowship with friends, family, and co-workers, it is not the true reason we celebrate Christmas. If the gifts, the decorations, the parties, the get-togethers, and Santa were removed, there would still be Christmas because Christmas is about Jesus.
We at Elk River Evergreens enjoy growing Christmas trees and sharing in the commercial celebration of Christmas. However, it is more important to us that we share Jesus Christ. As you celebrate Christmas this year, we hope that you will take time to remember the true meaning of the season and thank God for the gift of eternal life available to all because He sent His son Jesus.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16 )
Wishing you a Merry Christmas,
Gary and Pat, David and Kathy, Luke and Jennifer,
Meredith and Nick, Molly, Caroline, Megan, Annie, and Katie
