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

Series: Christmas Season 2014

Message: Joseph

Joseph had to deal with a pretty extraordinary circumstance win he discovered that Mary was pregnant. He was visited by an angel with some incredible news. Like Joseph, we have to trust God as well.

Dec. 11th News

December 7, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Last week we continued our journey through Christmas passages by looking at Gabriel’s announcement to Mary… “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.” Incredible words proclaiming that God was going to be with Mary in a very special way.

But the same is true of us. We are highly favored– or “highly graced” by God’s unmerited favor in the gift of Jesus. The Lord is also with us– through the gift of his Holy Spirit.

This week, we will look at Joseph. Read Matthew 1:18-25 and try to place yourself in Joesph’s shoes (or sandals as the case may be). How would you have felt and reacted? And pay close attention to what the angel says to Joesph, because– you guessed it– God is telling us the same thing!

My prayer this season for me and my family– and for you– is to see the Christmas story in a whole new light. It is not just a celebration of a past event (although it certa inily is that); it is a celebration of a present reality and a future hope… all wrapped up in a manger.

Looking forward to Sunday!

Grace and peace,

Doug

Christmas Caroling at Russell House

Last year we had a large group of folks go to Russell House (a government subsidized low-income housing project) to sing Christmas carols to (and the with) the residents. It was a blast. We want to do that again this year, so here are the facts:

When:  Sunday Dec 18th around 3:00pm– This will be right after I preach at the Russell House church service so there will be some folks who may join us right away.

Where: Russell House. It’s just across the street from Hilltop Community Church down toward Hilltop (the entrance is right at Wolfsnare)

What: Sing Carols… Even if you can’t sing. I mean ChrisAdams did it last year (and he even tried to clap). Bring a smile too– the residents love that!

Christmas Eve Service

This year, all three churches that meet at Hilltop Community Church will be combing to celebrate Christmas Eve together. The service will be in the sanctuary and will start at 5:00pm and end around 6:00.

Full childcare will be provided (according to Crosscurrent website 🙂
