Preparing for Christmas
In a culture of fear, in a world of uncertainty, we need to be reminded: Do Not Be Afraid. When we read the stories of Jesus’ birth, we meet many characters who had cause to feel afraid due to the circumstances they faced and the cultural context of the time. But angels came to visit them and the message they brought was “Do Not Be Afraid.” In our modern day and age, sometimes we need to hear exactly the same message. This season we encourage one another to “fly in the face of fear” claiming hope, peace, joy, and love for the world.
Nov. 26th : Make ready a People: more hope
Dec. 3rd : Nothing is Impossible: more peace
Dec. 10th : Do Not Be Afraid: more joy
Dec. 17th : This Will Be a Sign: more love
(Rev. Dr. Andrew L. Foster III, our District Superintendent, preaching)
Dec. 24th : Children’s Pageant
Dec. 31st : Get up and Go: more life
