The workplace is the primary ministry many people are called to. Reaching your workplace for Christ can seem intimidating but with a few ideas and a little initiative it can be an incredible adventure and fulfilling opportunity. Check this post for a few ideas on reaching your workplace for Christ and keep your eyes open for more soon. I wanted to share a few ideas for reaching your workplace for Christ over Christmas.
First, a great way to reach your workplace for Christmas is to do a little decorating! Seriously. If you have an office put a few Christ centered Christmas cards, pictures or posters (check out these posters) in your office. You probably don't wan to go overboard with your decorating but can definitely be intentional about pointing to Christ with your office aesthetics. Even if you don't have an office, you could come up with creative ideas to bring Christ into your surroundings. Maybe it could be the Christmas music you play, a pin you wear or some other idea. A visible reference to Jesus in your office is a great way to share your faith this Christmas, in your workplace.
A second idea would be to carefully select Christmas cards that share the gospel for each of your co-workers. Get some ideas on that here.
A third idea would be to pick Christ centered gifts for your Christmas party. You could buy a Bible or some other gift that would encourage your co-workers towards Christ (check out these gift ideas). You could also give out gift bags and get to the gospel that way.
Fourth, do the Christmas Soularium with co-workers over your lunch break.
Fifth, help a co-worker out. With all the financial hardships going around I'm sure someone in your office is looking at a pretty bleak Christmas. Maybe you could help them get gifts for their children or find some other creative way to bless them.
Finally, say Merry Christmas instead of Happy Holidays. That seems like a no-brainer but could easily open up discussions with co-workers. Anyway, those are just a few and there are no doubt many more. Please let us know of any ideas you have for sharing with co-workers over Christmas. Have a blast trying out these ideas.
