A remarkable gift can arrive in an unremarkable package.
One did in Bethlehem more than 2,000 years ago.
No one expected God to come the way he did.
Yet the way he came was every bit as important as the coming itself.
The manger is the message.
In this four-session video Bible study, Max Lucado explores how the One who made everything chose to make himself nothing for us.
He experienced hunger and thirst.
He went through the stages of human development.
He was taught to walk, stand, and wash his face.
He was completely and genuinely human.
Because of Bethlehem, we no longer have marks on our record . . . just grace.
We have the promise that God is always near us, always for us, always within us—and that we have a friend and Savior in heaven.
Long after the guests have left, the carolers have gone home, and the lights have come down, these promises endure.
Drumroll please……it's finally here, time for your chance to be part of the Christmas Choir!
We are excited to be starting rehearsals for the Christmas season, and we need you to join us!!
All ages, 11 to 100 are welcome!
We'll be doing some gospel music, learning it by ear (for those of you who don't read music), as well as several songs using music.
If you sing, come join us in the excitement as we celebrate the birth of our wonderful Savior, Jesus!!
Rehearsals will be:
Thursday, November 30th,
7:00 – 8:30pm
Sunday, December 10,
approximately 12:20 – 1:15
