The Angel & the Shepherds

Message: The Angel & the Shepherds

On the night Jesus was born, we read that an angel appeared to shepherds who were tending their flocks. Why did God want the shepherds to know what was happening? How did they respond? What does this mean for us?

December 11th News: Joseph & the Angel

December 9, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Message: Joseph & the Angel

Last week we saw the angel Gabriel go to Mary to explain her role in Jesus coming to the earth as a baby. Heaven invading the world.

This week, we will see that God sends an angel to her betrothed, Joseph, as well. This story is about great sacrifice and faith- and it speaks to challenges that we face on a regular basis.

To prepare for this Sunday, read Luke Matthew 1:18-25. As you read, ask yourself this: how would I react if I were in Joseph’s position?

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Message: Gabriel & Mary

When Gabriel is sent to Mary, he has an incredible message. But it is a message God sends to us today as well.

December 1st News: Mary & Gabriel

December 2, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Message: Mary and Gabriel

As we enter the Christmas season, we have the opportunity to focus our hearts and minds on the incredible truth that God– the creator of the heavens and the earth– entered our broken world. Even though we are so familiar with this story, we can still learn more truths about God’s beauty, grace and love when we read the story again from his Word.

That is what we will be doing for the next three weeks leading up to Christmas Eve… We will read parts of the story and contemplate what they reveal to us about God and his Son, Jesus Christ. After all, Jesus is the focus of Christmas…

To prepare for this Sunday, read Luke 1:26-38. It is the story of the angel Gabriel visiting Mary to tell her what she is about to experience. Before you read, take time to ask God to show you something new in his Word. Read it several times between now and Sunday and ponder what the Holy Spirit wants to teach you.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

December 20th News: LOVE

December 18, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

This Sunday we conclude our Advent series called The Word Became Flesh.

 

Last week we saw that God was revealed to the world, he was rejected by many, and received by some.

This week, we will discover some truths about God that make Christianity unique among all the religions of the world. In his great love, God comes to us so that we can have life with him. We could never get to God on our own, so he came to us.

To prepare, read John 1:14-18.

Christmas Eve Service:  Thursday, December 24th @ 5:30pm.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

December 9, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

This Sunday we our Advent series called The Word Became Flesh.

 

Last week we saw that God uses people to share the light with others.

This week, we will hear about how we can become Children of the Light. To prepare, read John 1:9-13. As you read, ponder what John is saying. You will see that he explains much about the world we live in.

As we go through this passage, we will discover that Jesus provides a way for us to have peace with God and, as a result, peace with others.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

November 29th News: Advent Series

November 25, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

This Sunday we will begin a new series called The Word Became Flesh to celebrate the Advent season.

 

For the next 4 Sundays we will look at John 1:1-18 to see the beautiful realities of God coming to his creation in the form of a man. This will be a wonderful opportunity to see how John begins his gospel with several foundational truths that become the basis for the Christian faith.

Join us each week as we learn more about who Jesus is, why he came, and what he has done.

To prepare this week, read John 1:1-18. We we focus primarily on John 1:1-5 to learn about the light that came into the world.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
