1. Christmas means so many different things to so many different people. One thing that is common to all though, are challenges that seek to rob us of our joy. Fear, worry, broken relationships, difficult circumstances...at one time or another, one or more of these challenges are going to make the Christmas season a reminder of all that is not in our lives. There is some good news however in the middle of it all.

    In today's message, we set out on a 4 week journey that looks at the key parts of the Christmas story, and how God made it possible to experience peace, hope, and joy in the middle of a busy and stressful season.

  2. Timing. It can make the difference between happiness and frustration, victory and failure, even between life and death.

    This Christmas, chances are you have something that you are waiting on God for...something you'd like to see happen in your life, or the life of a loved one. What happens though when God seems silent? What happens when God's timing seems late?

    In the Apostle Paul's letter to the church in Galatia, he wrote "But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son..."

    In today's message, we consider the amazing circumstances around the timing of Jesus' birth that demonstrate the wisdom of God's timing. We just might discover that He also has a perfect time planned for our circumstances as well.

  3. Do you ever find yourself suffering from anxiety at the thought of seeing certain people or family members at Christmas? For many of us, our pasts include moments of great hurt and pain due to words spoken, actions done, or actions left undone by people who were once close to us. Truth is, those things can still hurt today.

    In the Christmas carol "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" we sing the line "God and sinners reconciled." We sing it with ease because it reminds us of God's love and forgiveness for us. The idea of reconciling with others is a whole different story however. This idea seems far more daunting and complicated to us.

    In today's message, we discover some principles that just might make your gatherings this Christmas a little less dreadful, and a whole lot more peaceful.
