December Worship Series

December Worship

You’ll hear lyrics often during the holiday season—about a man who’s coming to bring all sorts of gifts. But, are they really gifts? The definition of a gift is “something given voluntarily without payment or condition.” The man in red has conditions.

You better watch out. You better not cry. You better not pout. He knows if you’ve been bad or good, so be good…

If you give someone a gift only if they meet certain qualifications, that is not a gift. There is one who is coming, bearing real gifts, profoundly important gifts. Jesus came that first Christmas to win forgiveness and give all the gifts that come with it—gifts we’ll celebrate this Advent season:

December 2nd – The gift of hope

December 9th – The gift of peace

December 16th – The gift of joy

December 23rd – The gift of love

He is coming again at the end of this world to give you the gift of resurrection to eternal life. In the season of Advent, we connect Christ’s first coming with his second coming. We rejoice in all the unconditional gifts he gives. Walking together with the brothers and sisters of our church body, we strive to share those gifts with one-million souls this holy season. He is coming, bearing gifts. Let us prepare our hearts…and the hearts of others…to meet him.

Idols You Never Knew You Had – Sundays @ 8:45am (Sept. 9,16,23,30)

What is an idol?  While we might initially think of golden calves, graven images, and gods named Baal or Buddha, would we agree that an idol is really anything that is more important to us than God?  If so, then idolatry isn’t just a primitive practice from ancient cultures, but it’s a real danger to modern-day Christians. And maybe, just maybe, we have idols in our lives that capture our hearts and absorb our time more than we realize.

In this four-week series, Idols We Never Knew We Had, we’ll seek to identify some of those sneaky present-day idols and, by the power of God’s Word, avoid the spiritual dangers that accompany them.

Day: Sundays (September 9, 16, 23, 30)
Time: 8:45 a.m.
