Christmas Heroes Special Message 
 
I am so amped about partnering with Discovery Kids and our Amplified Student Ministry to tell the story of Christmas Heroes this upcoming Sunday, Dec 13th. You will want to invite family & friends and make it a priority to be at the 9:30a or 11:00a service. Looking forward to seeing you!

Also, I want to ask you to continue to pray about giving a special gift to Jesus as we celebrate his birth. It's a season of giving. Our happy birthday Jesus offering will take place on Dec 20th during both services. Quite honestly, Discovery is at a place where we need God's people to step up in funding God's church. I know that God is going to use DCC to minister mightily to our community this Christmas and beyond in 2016. I love you and it a privilege to serve as your pastor! 


Advent Guide - Week 2: Peace

This week our Advent reading focuses on the immediate prophecies surrounding Jesus’ birth. These accounts tell of God’s divine interjection into the lives of ordinary men and women, changing the course of their journey forever.

CONSIDER: Where has God intervened in your own story? What do we learn about Jesus through these prophecies? As each account anticipates the coming Christ, what do you anticipate in the promises of the Kingdom of God?

SCRIPTURE: Luke 1:5-17, Luke 1:57-59, Matthew 3:1-12, Luke 1:26-56, Matthew 1:18-25

PRAYER: Most Merciful God, so often we expect great things to happen with fireworks and parades, but we know that you are the God of the still, small whisper. You came into the world innocent and vulnerable and changed everything. Give us eyes to see the subtle miracles of our every day. Give us willing hearts to adapt and change at your quiet prompting, that we may walk in your way and delight in your will. Amen.

Happy Birthday Jesus Offering


In this season of giving, we ask that you pray about presenting a generous gift to Jesus beyond what you might normally give.

The Bible teaches in 2 Corinthians 9:6 "Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously...God loves a cheerful giver."

Sunday morning, Dec 20 at Discovery.
