Pastor Andy Fuqua brings the story of the wise men from Matthew 2:1-12 for a Christmas Eve candlelight service. What is the greatest gift you can give this Christmas? The best Christmas gift you can ever give is to give yourself to the Lord.
Pastor Alex Unis continues the Christmas Songs series with a message from Luke 2:29-32. God answered an old man’s prayer by allowing Simeon to see Jesus on His first visit to the temple at just eight days old. Simeon had waited decades to see God’s salvation, and was overjoyed to meet the Lord. How patiently do we wait on God? And are we filled with joy when He answers our prayers?
Pastor Andy continues our series looking at the original Christmas songs recorded in the Bible. In Luke 2:14, the angels sang, "Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth, peace to those on whom his favor rests." This leads us to ask who are those on whom God's favor rests? Am I someone who is favored by God? How can I be included in that group and receive God's peace this Christmas?
Mike Moll, one of our elders, brings the second message in our series Christmas Songs. In Luke 1:67-69, we find Zechariah's response to the angel who told him his wife, Elizabeth, would have a son in her old age. That son was John the Baptist, the forerunner of Christ.
Pastor Andy begins a new sermon series called Christmas Songs, where we study together the original songs of Christmas. The first Christmas music was composed a couple thousand years ago and written in Scripture. These Christmas songs from the Bible will help us make this Christmas season a time of worship, with family, friends, food, and shopping filling their appropriate roles under the Lord Jesus Christ.
