Kia ora, <<First Name>>

Welcome to the Christmas edition of Tūmanako!

This month’s email is being sent early, to hopefully land in your inbox before you leave on holiday, ignore your devices, and celebrate this special time of year! Christmas is a time of welcoming God into our lives in new ways, and celebrating the ways that Jesus has already transformed us. We hope the articles and resources here help you to do that over this Christmas break.

May you and your whānau have a blessed Christmas season and beginning of the new year. Meri Kirihimete!
