Christmas Series 2014

Christmas Presence Header b

We know what you really want for Christmas – and it’s not the gifts or the extra five pounds around the waist. What you really want is hope. It’s peace. Joy. Love. You don’t want presents so much as you want His presence. Those are the topics we’re going to talk about on Sunday mornings in December, and on Christmas Eve.

Don’t just come, but invite your friends, because this is what they really want too!

Our series text, the one that we’ll refer to every week, is Romans 5:1-8. This text puts hope, joy, peace and love into the context of what Jesus has done for us, and is doing in us through his Holy Spirit.
