Chestnut Ridge Church
Keep Calm and Party On
The holidays are coming. What’s supposed to be a season of joy and celebration, often is not. We find ourselves distracted by preparations, overwhelmed by expectations, or depressed by our own circumstances. Let’s learn how we can make the holidays enjoyable and meaningful! We’ll discover how to take a biblical approach to the holidays, and explore how we can be present, keep calm, and survive the season.
