Celebrate Jesus’ Birth with Four NEW Ornaments of Faith®
by Alison Zeller
CTA introduced the first Ornaments of Faith® in 1999 and customers immediately fell in love. Since then, the ornaments’ themes have changed from year to year, but the beautiful artwork, high-quality pewter-finished construction, and Christian meaning always remain.
This Christmas season, CTA is continuing the 19-year tradition by adding four new Ornaments of Faith®:
- Christ the Savior Is Born - This cross-shaped ornament depicts the holy family as the Wise Men kneel nearby and worship the newborn King.
- Come Adore Him - With the traditional Christmas hymn in mind, this ornament features a drum on a background of Christmas foliage.
- Joy of Christmas - In the center of this Christmas star ornament, you’ll find a cross filled with golden epoxy.
- A Child Is Born - A picture of the nativity scene lays in the center of this pewter-finished ornament in the shape of a Christmas bulb.
Each Ornament of Faith® comes with a card that includes a Scripture verse and a short poem - perfect for sharing the story of Jesus’ birth! Even better, you can personalize the back of the card with your church’s name and a brief message.
Ornaments of Faith® make terrific gifts for worshippers, volunteers, and staff members.
- Hand out the Joy to the World ornament to all of your music ministry members after they finish services on Christmas Day.
- Pick an ornament and download the corresponding Ministry Message from the Resource & Idea Center. Use the message during your staff devotions and give each person an ornament as he or she leaves.
- Before your volunteers’ Christmas party begins, lay a variety of Ornaments of Faith® on each table. Invite the volunteers to take an ornament home at the end of the event.
- If your church has a budget for every-member gifts this Christmas, hand out Ornaments of Faith® as families leave worship services. Or, use the Ornaments of Faith® to decorate a tree in your church’s entryway. Invite worshippers to admire all of the ornaments and take one home.
