This week I will begin a new Christmas series titled “God With and For Us.” What does Christmas mean to you? We will unpack the meaning of Christmas from its very beginning. There is a deep longing on our part to be united to the presence of God. There is a deep willingness and plan on God’s part to be united to us. Throughout the Bible we see this human longing, and God’s willingness and plan to be present with people. God is with and for His people.
Sunday's message will focus on “God with Us.” God’s Old Testament people knew the presence of God through a cloud, a tent, and a temple. We know His presence through Jesus Christ and now through the Holy Spirit. Let’s track how God, a divine being, goes about revealing Himself to humans, earthly beings. We’ll also learn how we can connect to God today.
Also, please join us for our Candlelight Service on Sunday night at 5:00 p.m. We will sing our way through the Christmas story in a family-friendly way. Bring your children, friends, and family to share the light of Christmas.
