Hi friends! I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! Here is my sermon from our 9PM service on Christmas Eve.
Happy New Year!
We finished up our Advent sermon series on spiritual practices this week by looking at evangelism through the story of the shepherds and the angels. This is my last Advent sermon - our Christmas pageant is this Sunday. I will be back a few days after Christmas to post my Christmas sermon. Merry Christmas everyone! Our cries for Emmanuel have been heard!
I cannot believe that Christmas Eve is TWO weeks away. This season is flying by and I am trying to soak it up and enjoy time with my family, while also enjoying all of the wonderful things we do at church, as well!
Sunday was our second week into our three-week Advent sermon series looking at some of the spiritual practices the Christmas story teaches us. Ironic that I was preaching my sermon on hospitality the same week as our annual meeting where I gave my report and also talked about hospitality! We had a double baptism on Sunday, so I tried to keep things on the brief side ("tried" - ha!).
Hi friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We capped off our Thanksgiving weekend with a wonderful Hanging of the Greens service in worship on Sunday and then a hugely successful Giving Tuesday two days later. (If you are interested in donating to that campaign, our page is still live!)
On Sunday we kicked off a three-week Advent sermon series looking at some of the spiritual practices we learn about in the Christmas story. We started with service - and the stories of Mary and Joseph. The sermon is shorter, because - between Hanging of the Greens and Communion - we had a lot going on in worship!
