It is not too early to begin preparing for Thanksgiving and Christmas services. Begin planning now for a strong series leading up to Christmas. Then, make sure you have a strong Christmas eve service and a message series that will keep those visitors coming in the new year.
If you need help with these services, the second most popular page in the pastor's area of LifeWay.com (right after the Extra! Sermon Helps) is our Christmas and Thanksgiving Resource Index. In the next couple of weeks I will post one new Thanksgiving sermon and four new Christmas sermons. Right now you can find many excellent model Christmas and Thanksgiving sermons along with helpful downloads.
