It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go! But what does Christmas mean to you? God coming to earth to be with us and sharing with us all there is to live a life full of joy and peace. Sometimes we forget the promises He made to us. The promise of everlasting life! What a Gift!!
All the promises of God, through a relationship with Jesus remain sure and steadfast. The familiar Scripture passages of the Christmas story contain many themes, including: “Do not be afraid” (translated “Fear not”). The shepherds as well as Mary, Joseph, and Zechariah all needed this reassurance from the angels.
“But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news
that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in a town of David a
Savior has been born to you, He is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:10-11).
Our trust in God is one way to manage fear. During Advent we focus on the waiting time before Christmas. It is a time to reflect on the birth of Jesus which shows God’s love for us. We hope you will be able to attend the Christmas Eve service of scriptures, carols, and candles and the Truth from God’s word. We will gather on Saturday the 24th at 6pm and Sunday Christmas Day at 9:00 am
Jesus is the Reason for the Season!
Much Love and Peace to you all!
Pastor Steve and Sheryl
