Christmas Eve Services

Christmas Eve Services 
Make plans to gather family and friends and join us this Christmas Eve at 3:30p or 5:00p for Messiah, a special candlelight service with an inspiring message. It will be a time of reflection and intimacy with God and a perfect way to remember the Messiah. Also, stop by the lobby at 4:15p for the Christmas Café featuring a chocolate fountain, warm drinks, and treats. And while you're at it, snag a photo op in front of the Christmas trees. 

This Sunday, Dec 27th we are completing our series Heroes with an inspiring message about the Biblical character Joshua. He will help us as we look ahead to the new year, prepare to take new territory in our lives, and move forward with courage. Services are at 9:30a and 11:00a and it's going to be an awesome Sunday!

I love you and I can't wait to see you for Christmas! 

Advent Guide - Week 4: LOVE 

The readings for the fourth week of Advent explore Jesus’ identity, his work among us, and his second coming – all of which are rooted in God’s love for the world. Jesus came as a herald for and first fruits of the Kingdom of God, bringing life, light, and love. The ripples of his ministry have grown into waves that have touched every corner of the world. Now we long for the culmination and fulfillment of his work in his second coming. Where do you experience the tension of living in the now-but-not-yet of the Kingdom of God? During this Advent season and into Christmas, how can you celebrate the love of God? How can you be an agent of that love in your family, neighborhood, or workplace?

PRAYER: Almighty God, in a lowly manger you came into the world and changed everything forever. Your healing touch and unfailing love brought sight to the blind, strength to the lame, and freedom to the oppressed. Now we wait expectantly for the day when there will be no more death, no more mourning, no more crying or pain; the day when you make all things new. So we pray, come, Lord Jesus, come. Amen.

SCRIPTURE: Luke 4:14-20, Romans 8:18-30, 2 Corinthians 5:1-10, Matthew 24:37-44, John 14:15-21, Revelation 21:1-5
