This Sunday we will continue to look at the story of Christmas by hearing what this all means from Jesus himself.

In John 3, Jesus has a night time encounter with a Pharisee named Nicodemus. They discuss many things, but in the discourse Jesus reveals the reason he came to this earth. In perhaps the quoted verse in the Bible (John 3:16), Jesus tells us about what we celebrate at Christmas.

Read all of John 3 to prepare your hearts and minds for this Sunday. I can’t think of a better verse to ponder as we head towards Christmas Eve.

We will also celebrate the Lord’s Supper this Sunday to remember Jesus’ sacrifice for our salvation.

On Monday, December 24th, we will gather at 5:30 for a special Christmas Eve Service in the Fellowship Hall of Hilltop Community Church (where we normally meet). The service will be about an hour and will be a great time to celebrate God’s gift of Jesus!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
