From the Pastor

December 2018

Brothers and Sisters,

The coming Christmas is a time of expectation and joy as we anticipate the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. From His humble beginnings until His death and resurrection our world was blessed with His life and ministry. Jesus was about sacrificing himself to save us from our sins and short-comings. What a great gift Jesus is to us!

This Christmas season we will concentrate on keeping Christ in Christmas and how we should keep His gift in perspective and avoid the trappings that our culture and earthly nature has hoisted upon us in terms of commercialism and materialism. Our focus should be this season on the miracle of His birth and what this event means to us as Christians. It is not about how many or what type of gifts we give each other. 

Join us this Advent season as we light a new candle each week on the Advent wreath, as we listen to guest singers and musicians, and we concentrate on scripture and songs that glorify the coming of our Lord, our Savior, Jesus the Christ! We have also planned an intimate candlelit service for Christmas Eve at 7 PM. Join us for a service filled with seasonal hymns, scripture readings by congregational members, and the lighting of candles as we await the birth of baby Jesus. This Advent season promises to be memorable and spiritually enriching. Please join us as we worship the coming King!

“Look, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel, which means ‘God is with us’.”

Matthew 1:23

In Christ,
Pastor Dave
