Pastor’s Blog – Advent: The Grand Finale

Will you be a Christmas Angel this year?

Angels are messengers. They tell Good News from God during the events of Christmas.
Will you spread the news of Jesus’ birth this Christmas?
How about telling your family and friends about our Christmas Eve services 4 & 6, and 11:00?
Community is excited to serve you and yours this Christmas—sharing the Good News of our Savior Jesus’ birth! It is our hope and prayer that your family will be blessed to worship Jesus this Christmas Eve with your friends at Community!

Love Came Down at Christmas!

This Sunday is the final Advent service. We might even call it the Grand Finale—as our final preparation for Christmas Even. We can’t help but think of gifts and gift giving at Christmas time – after all – God started it!
He is the ultimate Gift Giver – giving us life and salvation in baby Jesus born of Mary, worshipped by shepherds, and announced by angels. This Christmas, every gift we give is an expression of love and care that reflects the perfect Gift God gave to us all – Jesus!
The gift of Jesus is for you! And the gifts He gives are for you!
How do you and I respond?
We rejoice together in Christmas Eve worship – like the shepherds who worshipped Him together at His birth.
We also respond with our gifts – like the Wise Men who gave precious treasures as they worshipped Jesus sometime later. We too bring our precious gifts as part of our worship. I encourage you to ponder like Mary the Gift of God that is born in you again this Christmas. May her song be the song of your heart too this Christmas:
“My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.”
