“For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16 “Surely He took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered Him stricken by God, smitten by Him, and afflicted. "But He was pierced for our transgressions." He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him and by His wounds we are healed.” – Isaiah 53:4-5

Reflections- "But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship." - Galatians 4:4-5
 
 
THE PASTOR'S PERSPECTIVE
 
​There are a number of wonderful events and services that will add to our celebration of the birth of Jesus this Christmas.  There is Christmas Caroling....Handbell Choir playing....The Worship Choir's Christmas Cantata and our Candlelight Christmas Eve service.  More information on each event is listed below.
 
Each of us was born with a sinful nature.  We each have a propensity to sin.  As Max Lucado wrote- "The sinful nature is all about self:  pleasing self, promoting self, preserving self.  The heart of the human problem is the problem of the human heart."
 
Christmas celebrates the birth of our Savior who would save us from ourselves, our sinful nature and our sins.  In speaking to Joseph, an angel said this in Matthew 1:21- "She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins."
 
Celebrating Christ at Christmas,
