Sunday is our annual Kid’s Church and Youth Group Christmas Presentation and lunch
Our always-popular Christmas service featuring our Kid’s Church and Youth Group is this Sunday coming up. Friends and family are heartily invited to come out and join in this look at Christmas through some different perspectives.
Also, back is the post-event lunch. Enjoy the presentations and message for the morning then stay and enjoy lunch as we build community.
Announcing our Community Carol Sing
On Friday December 23 at 7pm, please join us for our community Christmas carol sing. We’ll be singing seasonal favorites under the stars (hopefully!). Please mark the date and think about who you can invite to come with you. There will be an opportunity to distribute some post card invitations as well coming up. Please pray that we’d have many from the neighborhood and community join us as we lift our voices in praise.
Thought for the day: Christmas- a message worth sharing
Remembering the story of Jesus’ birth is a wonderful part of Christmas. It may be hard to believe that in 2022 so many people have never heard it before! Or if they have, they don’t understand what it has to do with them. The Christmas story has been lost in the shuffle of everything else going on this time of year. And even for those who know the basics of the story, many have no clue as to why Jesus came to earth or why He was born.
Everyone needs to know, not only that He was born, but the meaning of His birth, we’d probably all agree. So, ‘what is my part?’ I’m glad you asked! This is likely the easiest time of year to talk about the Good News of Jesus birth, life and importance. While you can’t predict who is open to the gospel, my bet is at this time of year everyone is aware of it. This is a great door-opener! And hey, the only way to find out is to share the message of Jesus with them!
So, this Christmas, I’d encourage you to share the gospel story of the birth of Jesus and what it means. Sow seeds abundantly.
When the angels appeared to the shepherds nearly two thousand years ago just outside of Bethlehem they shared this message: “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.” In many ways that’s still our message today. So then, who can you share this same idea with this Christmas?
In His grip,
