I’m always on the lookout for fresh, new Christmas ideas.
Using the same format or event idea every Christmas can start to feel a little bit tired and tends to attract the same group of women. Even a minor tweak can make a difference!
As you can imagine, I jumped at the opportunity to the newest women’s ministry Christmas line from CTA, Inc. Below you’ll find my complete Christmas resource review of Love’s Pure Light.
Love’s Pure Light invites you to share the light of the newborn Savior, Jesus, with the women in your church and community this Christmas.
The focus verse is 1 John 1:5, “God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.”
While 1 John 1:5 is not a verse that typically comes to mind when I think about Christmas, the products and the devotional (which you can download for free here) tie it beautifully together. Because it is so different, it will capture the attention of your women, and they will remember it. This is a message they aren’t likely to hear in church on Sunday.
Focusing on the light in a dark world seems especially fitting this year.
Love’s Pure Light is an entire collection of Christ-centered products, including:
Every item features 1 John 1:5, keeping the focus on Christ. The artwork is beautiful! The glow from the white candles is highlighted on most of the items with a metallic copper lettering that shines – much like candlelight. The touch of a poinsettia and a hint of evergreen lend a classic Christmas touch which you could easily replicate in your décor.
I continue to be impressed with the quality of items I’ve received from CTA, Inc. I might have expected the ornaments to be flimsy and fragile – but they are not! The beads at the bottom are firmly attached to a strong backing, and a gold ribbon will allow your women to place it right on their tree. CTA, Inc. even includes organza gift bags for each ornament.
The Digital Event Guide suggests handing out ornaments to every woman in your church along with an invitation to your Christmas event. What a memorable way to invite women to an event! (I wish I had thought of this idea myself.)
I love a great journal, and again, CTA, Inc. delivers! The cover features that beautiful metallic copper that you have to see in person to appreciate. Each page is lined with space at the top to add the date. There is room for prayers at the bottom. My focus is drawn back to Christ with the featured scripture inscribed on the bottom of every page. I’m picky about my journals, and these check all the boxes!
My favorite take-home favor is the glass candle holder. I tend to lean towards more transparent candle holders, but this one is special. When you put a candle inside (even a battery-operated candle works), the light shines through the scripture verse. It’s such a neat effect!
You could order glass candle holders to use in the décor on each table and then give them away as door prizes at the end of your event.
The Devotional Card Set is a unique alternative to the traditional devotional book. These 12 beautiful laminated cards will be a great reminder of your event for your women. The cards contain scripture verses, prayers, activity suggestions, and encouragement. Though small in size (perfect to carry in your pocketbook), these cards are packed with great content.
Consider ordering the coordinating gift bag for your women to easily carry home their take-home favor and cookies from the optional cookie exchange.
CTA, Inc. has also bundled together several of the Love’s Pure Light items. Bundles are the perfect gift for your speaker, women’s ministry team members, and pastor’s wives.
The Digital Event Guide includes:
- An event schedule
- A script to read for the 30-minute devotional
- A discussion guide
- Tips for inviting women to the event
- Organizational ideas
- Décor suggestions
- Service project ideas
- Wording for a thank you note to attendees
The level of detail and number of tips and ideas is impressive! (If nothing else, purchase the guide!) I love the icebreaker game suggestion of having everyone guess the number of ornaments on a decorated tree.
Did I mention this guide is digital? There’s no waiting for the guide to arrive on your doorstep. You can download it to your device and begin using it immediately. How great is that?!
I’m a big fan of including outreach and serving opportunities at women’s ministry events. The Digital Event Guide includes a Sharing the Light Outreach project. Choose from six service project ideas that will provide attendees the opportunity to shine the hope of God’s pure Light into a hurting world.
The Leader’s Event Planning Kit contains the Digital Event Guide, devotional cards, journal, ornament, gift bag, and glass candle holder (as pictured at the top of this post). It’s a great way to sample all of the Love’s Pure Light products at a fantastic price!
CTA, Inc. understands busy women’s ministry leaders may not have the time or resources to create coordinating publicity materials. They stand in the gap by offering free resource packs for many of their resource collections.
Click here to check out the Love’s Pure Light free resource pack. The resource pack includes themed graphics, bulletin, postcard, flyer, placemat, and devotional. The publicity materials (bulletin, postcard, and flyer) are fillable PDFs so you can easily insert your event information (in-person or online).
If your team already has plans for this Christmas:
- You may wish to pull out the devotional and add it to your event.
- Order devotional cards, candles, ornaments, or journals for each attendee to take home.
- Add a Sharing the Light Outreach project.
- Purchase a Love’s Pure Light Gift Set for each women’s ministry team member.
Christmas event preparations don’t have to be stressful!
The Love’s Pure Light Collection includes everything you need to host an event that will impact your women with the love of Christ.
Invite your women to block out the Christmas chaos to focus on the Light of Jesus and our calling to be light in the world.
