S.H.I.N.E. - Christmas H.O.P.E. USA Coloring Contest

S.H.I.N.E. ~ Share His Incredible News Everywhere

... so that's what we did by holding a Shine USA Christmas H.O.P.E. Coloring Contest in 2013.

We celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ as a reminder of God's love sent to Earth through the Savior.

As believers, we are to share this message of H.O.P.E. (Heaven's Own Promised Emmanuel) to everyone. The USA theme was S.H.I.N.E. (Shine His Incredible News Everywhere), based on the scripture Matthew 5:16.
"Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in Heaven." Matthew 5:16 ESV

Do your kids like to color? Can they express what Christmas really means? We thought so, and that’s why we believed the Christmas H.O.P.E. Coloring Contest would enable us to reach a multitude of people with the gospel of message.  It worked!

Then Jesus said again unto them …
"I am the light of the world: he that follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. (John 8:12)

You made this possible in the USA.

Highlights of A Christmas H.O.P.E. USA Contest

To help our children learn that through the birth of Jesus, S.H.I.N.E., we gave out gift packs that tell of what God did because He loves us. In each gift pack there is a coloring page contest. Each child was given instruction on the rules and personal information they needed to include with their entry.
