December 2018 

Christmas is a very special time of the year for all Christians AND for non-Christians.  Somehow, no matter who we are, we get caught up with retail stores who quickly adorn themselves with all the yule decorations. Maybe, no matter who we are, we are looking for that piece of peace that we so need in our chaotic world and in our busy personal lives.

That is why I love the prophecies of old that tell of the coming of the Christ Child. I love to hear every year the same old story of the Angel Gabriel who told Mary, “Greetings favored one; the Lord is with you! You will name him Emmanuel – God with us!”

As we journey together during Advent, through trials and triumphs…because that is just the way life is, for us who claim Jesus, we can be comforted and affirmed by the good news of his birth.  This season , let’s invite at least ONE person to worship with us so that they too, might find peace, in the piece from the bible. “For to you is born this day in the City of David, a Savior who is the Messiah” (Luke 2).

This Christmas, may the Holy Spirit bring you great joy and may Christ be born anew in your heart.  Join us in December as we inch our way to Jesus’ birthday, culminating in our

Candlelight Service on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24th, at 7:00 pm.

Merry Christmas and May Peace Be with You!   

Blessings,
