Christmas Sermon Series to Begin November 30

I know it seems hard to believe the Christmas Season is already upon us, but -- it is! We are going to pause from our sermon series in which we have been going through the Gospel of Mark verse-by-verse on Sunday mornings. Instead, we will focus together on Christmas in a series of messages beginning Sunday, November 30. On both Sunday morning and Sunday night, Christmas will be our subject. Here are the messages I have planned for the Christmas Season:
