God With Us

Joseph and Mary

Joseph and Mary

I read recently almost 400,000 babies are born each day. The birth of a child isn't particularly extraordinary. But there is one kind of woman who never, ever gives birth: a virgin. It makes total sense that Mary questioned the angel Gabriel's news of her pregnancy and Joseph had to take a nap. Sunday we are going to take a closer look at these two most common individuals who possessed extraordinary faith. Make plans to join us for "Joseph and Mary"!

A Christmas Prophecy

Rev. Stacey M. Cox

A Christmas Prophecy

The Bible is a story, God's story. It recounts how the Creator made a beautiful and good world, and how He fashioned mankind in His image to share in His rule. It tells how things went terribly wrong, how the human race embraced the rule of sin and death. But God didn't simply walk away from His creation. Enter Christmas and the birth of Jesus.

This year we are calling our Advent series, "Immanuel: God with Us." And over the next four Sundays leading up to Christmas, we are going to look closely at some of the key elements of the biblical account of Christmas. We'll see exactly why the birth of a baby two thousand years ago should be important to us today. Hopefully we'll all come away with a new and deeper understanding of Christmas. We kick it off this Sunday with "A Christmas Prophecy." Hope you will join us!
