New Sermon Series – Good & Perfect Gifts – Sundays at 9:30 & 11:00am
Christmas is a time for gifts, and we all want to give good gifts. It’s fitting we should do so because it’s at Christmas we remember that God is the giver of all good and perfect gifts, most namely the gift of Jesus. In this series, we’ll consider the traditional advent candles and their themes: Hope, Peace, Love, Joy, & the birth of Christ. In doing so, we remember the rich history of the church, and the good & perfect gifts God affords to those who follow after the way of Jesus.
