Christmastime at Discovery
 
Christmas at Discovery is going to be special. We are trying new approaches and continuing to do some very special ministries that have always been a huge win.

Discovery Winter Wonderland Sat 12/15 at 4 PM: This is a totally new approach to our Christmas party. This year we are going to have a winter wonderland experience for family, friends, and invited guests. We will have a petting zoo, campfires setup out front with smores, craft stations, hay rides and caroling, cookie decorating, hot coco, and even a snow machine. All of this in addition to the family potluck. Love it! Going to be amazing!

The Good News Flash - Kids Christmas Play and Musical Sun 12/16 at 10 AM: Always entertaining and inspiring. Children bring the magic and good news of Christmas with a lot of talent and world of joy.

Messiah Christmas Service and Happy Birthday Jesus Special Offering, 12/23 at 10 AM: We encourage you to pray about and bring a special offering. We always think about gift giving at Christmas time and we encourage you to bring a special gift to Jesus to help His church.

Christmas Eve Candlelight Service 12/24 at 4 PM: It's going to be a special time to worship Jesus on Christmas Eve. We encourage you to come and invite friends!

This Sunday 12/9/18 at 10 AM: We begin to talk about the arrival of Jesus to our world and our place in God's story.

Much Love, 

Ben Taylor 

Lead Pastor

Thanksgiving Eve Service
 
 


 
eNews - Thanksgiving Edition!
 
The word "Thank" appears in the New Testament seventy two times. That's a lot! One passage that really had an impact on me today is Romans 1:21, "For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened." There can exist a knowledge of God without a thankfulness of God. The result of thanklessness is stupid thoughts and darkness.

On the flipside, I have discovered that thanking God and others produces great relationships. That's why we are doing a Thanksgiving Eve service tonight at Discovery at 6:30. We want to give you the chance to thank God for all He has done in your life. I hope you plan on joining us!

l have been changed by God's love and I am so thankful! I am so blessed to have an amazing wife Angela and wonderful children, Dylan and Breanna. I have the best job on planet Earth getting to pastor the amazing people who make up Discovery Community Church. I thank God for you!

I want to wish you a wonderful and fulfilling Thanksgiving Day with family and friends. I thank God for you!

Also, I encourage everyone to plan on being in service on Sunday as we continue the inspirational series, The Story: finding your purpose in God's story. Hope to see you Wed at 6:30 PM and Sunday at 10:00 AM. 

Advancing together, 

Ben Taylor

A Heart Filled with Contentment
 
I want to help you to enjoy Thanksgiving with a heart filled with contentment. This Sunday we will continue the Story series and talk about how we find contentment in God's Purpose. I believe the greatest enemy to you being thankful is discontent in your life. I want to help you to practice contentment so you can be truly grateful for all God has given you.

I hope you plan on attending our first ever Thanksgiving Eve service. It's going to be a heart-warming kick off to Thanksgiving. I love you and it is privilege to serve as your pastor.

The End of The Story - part 1
 
We continue to unfold The Story messages series as we take a look at the end. I know a lot of people in today's world who look ahead with gloom. I think there is a huge fear in people's lives about the unknowns of the future. I have great news! We are told in great detail about the end of God's story. Hopefully, you'll be glad to know it's a very happy and fulfilling ending, if you know Jesus. I hope you look ahead with great anticipation. If you don't know Jesus, you will want to, after hearing about the end. It's a very hard and hopeless end to the story for those without Jesus.

It's why talking about the end of God's story is so important. It does a couple very important things in our life: 
1) It motivates us with a sense of urgency.
2) The second coming of Jesus helps us appreciate the power of the first coming of Jesus at Christmas.

I love you and I can't wait to see you on Sunday. It's an honor and privilege to serve as your pastor! 

Advancing together, 

Ben Taylor 

Lead Pastor
