We want to wish you and yours a Very Merry Christmas! May you remember the reason for our celebration, the birth of Jesus, God's gift to mankind.
Just as the bright star shone over the place where Jesus was born pointing the way, so the Holy Spirit is shining over you.
Perhaps you've not yet started a personal relationship with Jesus. If not, then the Holy Spirit, as the Star of Bethlehem, is shining into your heart today, and God's gift to you this Christmas is that Jesus be born in your heart today.
Perhaps you already know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, and the Holy Spirit, the Star of Bethlehem, is shining into areas of your life in which something from God has been growing, and it's time for those things to come to manifestation and be born in your life.
Whichever one of these applies to you today, God is calling you to say "Yes!" to Jesus, opening your heart wide to him and to his plans for your life, and you can know the peace, joy, and unending love of Jesus today!
Choose your connection speed above and join us for worship and a time in the Word, as we celebrate the coming of the Messiah, born of a virgin and laid in a manger, and called Emanuel, God with us, Jesus!

The Gift Meant to be Given Away
Most of the gifts we receive for Christmas or birthdays, we don't give away. Most of them are meant for us, and giving them to others would mean we no longer have them.
But the gift of Jesus is a gift that is meant to be given away. In fact, the more we give Jesus to others, the more he begins to manifest in and through our lives.
Do you want more peace? Jesus is peace, and when you give him to others, more peace will come to you.
Do you want more joy? Jesus is joy, and when you give him to others, more joy will come to you.
Do you want more life? Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and as you give him to others, the true blessings of heaven will begin to fill your soul with life in great abundance.
