Christmas Letter 2022 – The Life Came Down

Christmas Greetings!

There is a beautiful quote that I wanted to share with you, which shares the sacrificial nature of the incarnation of Christ.  We often only think of Christ's sacrifice on the cross, but His sacrificial giving started years before the cross!

“The Life came down, that He might be slain; the Bread came down, that He might hunger; the Way came down, that He might be wearied in the way; the Fountain came down, that He might thirst.” – Augustine of Hippo

The Bible tells us in Isaiah 7:14 (NKJV) 14 Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.

Christmas Letter 2022 – Wise Men Still Seek Him

Christmas Season Greetings!

We can read the story of the Wise Men following the star to worship Jesus in Matthew 2:1-12. Please take some time to read that story as we come into the Christmas season.

The attitude of the Wise Men who came from a long distance away to honor the Christ Child is the same attitude humanity needs today in seeking.

The first chapter of Matthew represents the Lord Jesus as a Jew, the Son of David, the long-expected Messiah.

The second chapter tells us that the Gentiles are also interested in the newborn Savior.

Thanksgiving Service Welcome – Count Your Blessings

Welcome to Church on this Thanksgiving Sunday!

The Bible tells us in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NKJV) 18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

The Apostle Paul told the early church that it was essential to give thanks “in everything” we may go through. Although, there are many things we may find challenging to be thankful “for,” we CAN be thankful “in” all circumstances knowing that God will help us go through that journey.

First Sunday in Advent Church Letter or Welcome – Hope

Greetings in Jesus the King!

Welcome! Today is the first Sunday in the Advent season. Can you think of some of the Biblical themes of this season? Certainly, the love and faithfulness of God our Father is high up there, but have you ever considered the idea of hope? Although it may not be the first thing that comes to mind during the Christmas season, there is much to consider.

In fact, hope is a very prominent theme in Advent. The anticipation of the coming Messiah is always in light of the hope we have in his return. Just as the Israelites hoped for their deliverance, we too look forward to the final deliverance, his return in glory where he will create a new heavens and a new earth. As the prophet Isaiah proclaims:

Second Sunday in Advent Church Letter or Welcome – Faith

Greetings in Jesus the King!

Welcome! Today is the second Sunday in the Advent season.

Throughout the service, on this special Sunday, we will focus on the theme of “Faith.”  The Word of God makes it clear that we can't even approach God without having Faith in our hearts.

Hebrews 11:6 (NKJV) 6 But without Faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
