WHY IS OZARK DOING ELF?
That’s a good question, since it’s a different kind of musical than we’ve done before. In recent years, many churches have used December sermon series with titles like “Christmas at the Movies,” using themes from popular Christmas films to point to biblical truth, and these have been effective at reaching new people. So why is Ozark doing Elf?
- We hope to welcome young families—some who’ve never been on campus and some who may not know much about Jesus. Elf is a fun and familiar story to the younger generation, and as the first local production of this musical, we think it will draw some folks we’ve never met before.
- As Jesus’ parables remind us, sometimes you can find gospel truth in the most surprising stories…even a funny story about an elf looking for his dad. By evening’s end, we’ll talk about the deep longing for a loving father that haunts the whole human race and that points us to God, the Father we’ve all been looking for.
Christmas is a wonderful time to point people to Jesus, and with a little reflection, even a story like Elf can lead us to the manger. We hope you’ll invite the young families you know to join us for one of our performances December 5-8.
