Members of the Jesus Movement Christian Coalition recently participated in the San Pedro Holiday Parade aiming to teach some and remind others that Christmas is about Christ, according to Dr. Vanilla Brooks.

As chair of JMCC, Brooks said the group of multicultural, multidenominational believers are united for the cause of Jesus, the Christ. Guided by that mission, Brooks and JMCC urged all families to plan to observe Christmas in a worship service on Dec. 25.

“Let us teach our children about the birth of Jesus. Let us teach our communities and share the significance of Christmas. For without Christ, there would be no Christmas,” said Brooks.


“On Christmas Sunday, spend time in God’s presence for man’s presents didn’t and could never die for us. Man’s presents can’t save us. Man’s presents can’t give us a home in Heaven. Come together, worship Him and thankfully celebrate the birth of the Savior,” she stressed.

On Dec. 16, JMCC members hosted “Pizza, Paradise and Praise,” which Brooks described as “a pizza party with a Christian twist.”  The event featured activities for youth including games, nativity books, crowns and Christian gifts.
