Sometimes Christmas falls short of the ideal experience we imagine it should be. We give up hope that we will have the picture-perfect holiday. Then we remember that first Christmas with no room in the inn, a manger for a bed and animals for the guests. In the midst of that imperfection, Jesus Christ, our perfect hope, was born.

This holiday season, we invite you to join us at The Woodlands Methodist Church as we discover It’s (Not Always) a Wonderful Life: Real Life Meets Real Hope. Bring your friends and family and celebrate a perfectly imperfect Christmas with us.
