Christmas is here and we're so excited to celebrate the birth of our Savior and focus on the joy that we can have through Jesus!
This year, we have become familiar with many things. Making bread. Building puzzles. Searching for toilet paper. Telling others to unmute themselves. We’ve also become familiar with waiting. Waiting as we wish for a brighter tomorrow. Waiting as we hope for a better next year.Waiting as we pray for peace.In many ways, this is how people in the old testament felt for many years.They were waiting, and anxiously hopeful for better days ahead. And what they got was the ultimate gift of all. Advent.
Meet Joe. He’s pretty average. Joe has a story. He has issues. He often talks too much. He’s inconsistent. We may think that Joe is different from all of us. But the truth is, we actually have a lot in common with him. And since our stories are so similar to Joe’s, we can all learn from his. Join us online Sundays, at 9:15 AM, 11 AM, and 5 PM.
2020 for most has been a year of fear, difficulty, or waiting for circumstances to change. 21 days may seem like an insignificant amount of time, but 21 days can change everything... because prayer can change everything!
The Gospel is what drove the apostle Paul and changed the way he saw everything. God wants that for us, too. In Paul's letter to the church in Philippi, we see that the gospel changes our identity, the way we view people, circumstances, adversaries, our purpose, blessings, contentment, even death. The Gospel changes everything!
We have a weekly online worship service created just for your kids! You can stream on-demand anytime throughout the week.
It's no secret that life has gotten hard for a lot of us over the last few weeks. It seems like everywhere you turn, there's anxiety, fear, and uncertainty. So what do we do when life gets hard?
Even though we're facing tough times, we still have reason to celebrate - and that reason is Jesus.
We're facing times unlike we've ever faced before. Things can be frightening and uncertain, but that doesn't mean God is silent. You can't quarantine the Gospel. As we transition into a season where we can't "go to church" we can still "be the church."
There are some mountains in life that we haven’t been able to move for months, or even years. These strongholds can consume our thoughts, emotions, and actions. It’s easy to think, “can things really get better?... or will it always be this way?” The reality is, it can be different. Things can change. Mountains can move.
She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”
All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).
