Experience Christmas in Lake Country: A Glimpse from Last Year

Here is a look at the full service from Christmas in Lake Country 2022. We called it "Imperfict Christmas." It is all about how we all want the perfect Christmas. But something will probably go wrong. Maybe it already has. The right person won’t make it. The wrong person will. Your family gathering won’t be ideal. Your Christmas will probably be imperfect. But it can still be great.  At Christmas in Lake Country, we saw how an imperfect Christmas can lead you to the one thing that makes Christmas perfect.
