Christmas is Coming!

The pre-Christmas theatre event featuring the Taproot Theatre Company was enjoyable and well attended, as was the dessert that followed.Now we turn our attention to Christmas, celebrating the birth of Jesus the Messiah.For centuries, the Jewish people had pondered their need for salvation. They focused their expectation on a powerful figure, the Messiah, who would defeat their enemies and set up the universal worship of the one true God.Some looked for a mighty warrior like David, others looked for a charismatic leader like Moses, a few (puzzling over the Book of the prophet Isaiah) imagined someone who would gain victory through suffering.

What they got was better than anyone had imagined, they got Jesus. Jesus was not just sent from God, he was (and is) God. He did not defeat human enemies in battle, but he defeated sin, evil and death, giving us access to an eternal and blessed life with God. He was not just a solitary leader, he empowered the leaders of the early Church to begin to convert the world. Christmas, celebrating Jesus’ birth, is just the beginning of the story, but you will understand the story best if you hear the beginning.

Come join us on Christmas Eve (Friday) starting at 7:00 pm.

You can also join us on Christmas Day (Saturday) starting at 10:00 am.

And we will have our regular Sunday liturgy on December 26, starting (as usual) at 10:00.

May your Christmas be blessed and may you learn more about Jesus!
