Hello Friends and Family! We’re so glad you decided to join us for our Celebration Service this weekend. We’ve been praying that each of us will have a personal encounter with God’s love as we gather together in community this morning. Part of our experience this morning will include the observance of Communion. It’s our heart’s desire that every person who has said “Yes” to Jesus would engage in this meaningful experience. If you’ve not yet said “Yes” to Jesus, will you please just observe that part of our time together. Just pass the plate on by and watch. Some day when you do move across the line of faith, you will fully understand the deep meaning of what we do today.
Today we begin our Christmas season message series. It’s called “Believe.” For the next four services, including Christmas Eve, we’re going to look at four descriptive names and titles given to this baby who was born in Bethlehem. Today, we look at His name – Jesus. The angel said, “You are to name Him Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”
Make sure to stop by the Next Step Bookstore this morning and look at the Pastor’s Picks I chose for this series. You can also find Bibles, music, or other spiritual growth tools there.
Believing with you,
