One Christmas tradition that goes back as far as the first Christmas is that of gift giving. The first Christmas gift was the greatest one of all - the gift of a Savior.
During the holiday season, we immerse ourselves into gifts—buying, selling, giving, and receiving. But too often, we forget that God has gifts for us as well; the gifts of hope, joy, purpose and strength, through Jesus.
Christmas arrives again with all the promise of remembrance and celebration. Christians celebrate Christmas because the light did dawn. The birth of Jesus in Bethlehem was not only the fulfillment of biblical prophecy, but the dawn of a new age. As the angels declared to the shepherds, this infant is "a Savior, who is Christ the Lord." Christmas marks the way back for each of us to our true home in Christ.
We invite you to share in the celebration of this most holy season with your church family. Please join us for one of two candlelight services on Monday, December 24, at 4:00 PM and 6:30 PM. We gather to walk with the shepherds, to sing with the angels, to worship at the manger of the Child born as Savior of the world.
