Advent Study

A Savior is Born

It's one of the most familiar stories in human history: the birth of Jesus in a lowly manger in Bethlehem. A Savior, which is the Lord. Yet, how can we prepare our hearts to celebrate the birth of our Savior in our frantic, consumer driven society? How do we make sure the Christmas holiday remains a Holy Day?


God was intentional in every detail of His plan to bring His Son into the world. Through Mary, an everlasting hope would come to the nations. Through the little town of Bethlehem, the birth of our Savior would become a reality and be our prince of peace. Through shepherds, God would exalt the humble and show us that He is the sovereign shepherd of love. Through angels, God would send good tidings of great joy that would come to all people, everywhere.


Join us for a conversation after Sunday worship service beginning November 26, 2017 for 4 lessons on hope, peace, love, and joy!

Advent Sermon Series


This Advent/Christmas season we will be doing a special sermon series entitled:


"The Star, A Journey to Christmas".


Come along with us as we follow the star of Bethlehem on a journey of hope, love, joy and peace, culminating with a visit to the manger on Christmas Eve. The manger, in Bethlehem is where JESUS, the Son of God, 

the source of all good gifts lie. 


Don't miss it! It all starts on the first Sunday of Advent November 26 @ 10 A.M. and ends with your choice of one of three services on Christmas Eve 10 A.M., 7 P.M. or 11 P.M. 

We look forward to seeing you there!
