This past Sunday, we pushed pause on our Revelation study and Jesus' second coming to consider His first coming…as a baby. 

The Gospels of Matthew, Luke, and John all have detailed accounts of how Jesus was born. These details aren’t trivial—in fact, they reveal Jesus’ humanity and deity, showing that He was fully God and fully man. These accounts also fulfill prophetic promises God gave hundreds of years before. Ultimately, each account reveals to us the heart of our Heavenly Father in giving His Son. 

On Sunday, we looked carefully at the account in Matthew and the meaning in the genealogy of Jesus. Next week, we'll consider Luke's account. And on Christmas Eve, we'll look at John's record of Jesus' arrival as Messiah. Listen to our study of Matthew 1 and marvel at the God who chooses to be with us—and who also is our salvation!

Bookstore

Visit the bookstore in our 2nd-floor office after service on Sunday and browse our selection of Bibles and books—including great resources for kids! All the books are at or below retail and all the Bibles are at or below cost. Suggested donations are on the back of each resource—donations above cost go to support world missions.

Christmas Eve Service

Tuesday, December 24th at 4pm
Join us for a special Christmas Eve Family Worship Service as we gather to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus—Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace! 


ATTENTION PARENTS!

Children are invited to participate in a special song during our Christmas Eve Service. We'll be reviewing the song and actions during Sunday school leading up to Christmas Eve, but you can click here to review the song and actions with your child at home for extra practice. We're looking forward to sharing this exciting song with everyone in the fellowship!

Coming Up – Vision Sunday

At the beginning of each year, we consider the vision, purpose, and practice of our fellowship—why do we do what we do? Why do we invest in each other and encourage one another to persevere in following Jesus? Why do we tell others about the goodness and faithfulness and love of God and encourage them to do the same? There is a reason—and it is important. So important, it’s worth remembering year after year after year.

Join us for worship at 10am on the first Sunday of January (1/5/20) as we pause and review the vision of our fellowship.

Three and One

You can read through the Bible in 2020!

All you need is your Bible and two bookmarks. No matter how long it has been since you’ve read, just pick up where you left off and read three chapters from the Old Testament and one from the New Testament. With this reading rhythm five days a week, you will work your way through the Bible in a year (apart from Psalms & Proverbs). After you’ve read the daily reading, listen to Pastor Dominic share insights and encouragements in a daily podcast. Visit ThreeAndOne.org to  listen to episodes or subscribe to the feed on a variety of audio streaming services.

Be Encouraged

In the eighth Psalm, David asks two questions of the Lord: “What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him?”

God answers those two important questions in one person with two important names: Jesus and Immanuel. 

You see, from before time began…before the foundations of the world were established…before God created the entire universe—He saw you! And His love for you is so immense that He began His grand plan to save you.

This plan put a seemingly impossible amount of intricacy in motion—all for you. It spanned thousands of years and involved dozens of generations. It endured from creation through the fall and the flood. It continued through Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. It included David and persisted through captivity until the plan was finally fulfilled…by a baby boy born in Bethlehem. 

A baby named Jesus. A son called Immanuel. Jesus, which means, “God our salvation”. Immanuel, which means, “God with us.” In His infinite wisdom and out of His everlasting love, God responds to our greatest need with Himself.

Oh, come to us, abide with us
Our Lord Immanuel!
