Highlights

  • Preparing for the Christ, pt 3: Luke 1:39-80
    We have seen the past few weeks how Gabriel appeared to both Zechariah & Mary and proclaimed that two miraculous births would take place. That of John, who would be born to a barren couple and that of Lord Jesus, who would be born to a virgin.
    There is much joy in the remainder of the chapter as both Mary & Zechariah sing songs to the Lord, praising Him for His faithfulness, His mercy, and His deliverance of His people. And we should do the same! When we've experienced God's faithfulness & we remember all that He has done, we can't help but sing! God's people are singers!
  • Children's Church (4-8 yr olds)
    Due to the teachers being absent the rest of December, the children's church will be cancelled for the rest of December. It will resume in January. Thank you for understanding!
