From the Pastor
A simple three letter word. Something we all desire yet can often be so elusive. I love the Christmas season because JOY is what it’s all about. When the angel appeared to the shepherds outside of Bethlehem his announcement was, “Fear not, for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people.” The message of Christmas is not just a message of joy but of great JOY because a Savior was born!
For the next four weeks you are going to be challenged to Celebrate 365, to keep the Joy of Christmas Alive. I have no idea what 2021 holds. There is no guarantee that things will be better than they were in 2020. That’s okay! The joy of Christmas is not based on circumstances but in a Savior! Today, we are kicking off the Christmas season by Celebrating Christ, the reason for the season! Let His Way, His Power, and His Deliverance motivate you to keep the Joy of Christmas Alive!
Don’t miss the wonderful and easy opportunities this season gives you to bring someone to church with you. Grab some cards, invite people to come, and pray for many to find Christ and know true joy!
