Come and Worship Christ the Lord! - Christmas Eve 6 PM; Christmas Day 10:30 AM

It's hard to believe that Christmas Day is almost here! I know it is a very busy time for everyone. But in the midst of all the hustle and bustle, don't forget what "Christ - mas" is all about - Jesus Christ!

God loved us so much that He invaded human history to do the impossible - impossible for us. We could never pay our debt of sin, whether we had racked up 1 sin or 1 million sins (we're all a lot closer to 1 million!). But God provided the Great Sacrifice for our sin in the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus is the infinite God-Man. At Christmas, we celebrate His coming in human flesh for the purpose of giving His life for you and me.

I hope you will make the reason for the season the focal point of your Christmas celebration this year. One way to do that, is to do what the shepherds did on that first Christmas night - Worship Christ the Lord! We will have a Christmas Eve Service at 6:00 PM, and will also worship on Christmas Day at 10:30 AM (No Sunday School or Evening Worship). I hope you will come and worship at one or both of those services! We will sing Christmas Carols together, and worship Jesus. The Christmas Eve service will also include the observance of the Lord's Supper and will close with a candlelight singing of "Silent Night."

I look forward to seeing you this Christmas Weekend! Have a very Merry Christmas!
