The holidays tend to bring out the best and the worst in people. The hurry and busyness get in the way of us experiencing the joy, love, and peace of the season. What we need is a fresh perspective on things like gratitude and hospitality that can help us stay grounded during the holidays.


Check out Alpine’s mini-series, “Holiday Hustle”, and discover ways that you can navigate the buzz and bustle of the most wonderful time of the year while staying close to the Person that the season is all about!

01. Be The One

Speaker: Chris Brown
Date: November 24, 2019

We all look at Thanksgiving a little differently but everyone wrestles with the same thing this time of year: gratitude. Whether it’s busyness, entitlement, or familiarity, we all get distracted from our opportunities to be grateful. In the middle of the “Holiday Hustle”, it’s important to spend some time thinking about something that happened in the life of Jesus: a moment in time that can help us make sense of what it looks like to give thanks.

02. Turning Strangers Into Friends

Speaker: Alex Gowler
Date: December 1, 2019

We can all remember or imagine an experience of amazing hospitality. Moments like that don’t happen by accident. Behind every act of hospitality is a host who puts the time, energy, and attention into creating spaces where people are taken care of. While culture treats this kind of hospitality like a competition, Jesus shows us that hospitality is a reflection of who God is and an opportunity to share his love with the people in our lives.

Check out Part Two of “Holiday Hustle” and listen as Staff Pastor Alex Gowler shares about the hospitality of God, how our culture tends to mistreat hospitality, and practical ways to show and receive hospitality this holiday season.
