CHRISTMAS SERIES
SHEPHERDS: THE MARGINS RETURNED TO THE CENTER

Christmas in a Minor Key - Part 2
Sunday, December 11, 2022

 

Christmas is a time we associate with happiness, fond memories, enjoyable get-togethers with friends and families and lots of presents around the tree. In many ways, how we commemorate Christmas now is the complete opposite of everything that first Christmas was; it was shrouded in darkness, a time of hardship and plagued by scandal from the first mention of Mary’s pregnancy. In truth, Christmas is both - joyous because of what it represents and dark because of the reality of the world into which Jesus was born. In church, we often only tell the Christmas story in one way - the happy, festive, joyous way. But for people who are struggling, facing loss, or lacking in supportive families, Christmas becomes just another reminder of everything they lack. The original Christmas story is a message of hope for all people in all circumstances. Join us this December as we re-discover the real Christmas story in all its gritty, beautiful reality.

LAST WEEKEND

HEROD: THE MAN WHO TRIED TO KILL CHRISTMAS

Christmas in a Minor Key | Part 1
Senior Pastor Keith Stewart
Sunday, December 4, 2022

He’s Darth Vader, the Grinch and Lord Voldemort all rolled up into one. Herod is the Scrooge of the original Christmas story but a Scrooge whose heart never grows - a Scrooge whose heart remains tiny and as cold as ice. He’s the man who tried to kill Christmas. If you really want to understand what Christmas is all about, you need to understand why the story of Herod is included in the Christmas story. That’s what this weekend’s message was all about – don't miss it!

God's Will: Nothing More. Nothing Less. Nothing Else.

Our lives are shaped by hundreds of decisions we make each and every day. Many of those decisions are small and of little consequence. For the most part, God and what He desires barely even enters into our daily decision-making process. But on occasion, when the implications of a decision are huge, we wonder, “What would God have me do? If there’s a master plan, am I following it?” We need a discernment process for the will of God.

A Prayer Series for Non-Prayers

For some people, prayer is just not their thing. They don’t understand it or enjoy doing it. Instead, more often than not, they feel guilty for not wanting to pray. They suffer in silence keeping their questions and frustrations about prayer to themselves. If you’re one of the many who has struggled with unanswered prayer, or are easily bored or frustrated while praying, or never seem to hear a message from God, then this series is for you. In it, we’re going to address some of the most common difficulties with prayer and encourage new ways of revitalizing this powerful connection with God.
