You became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you welcomed the message in the midst of severe suffering with the joy given by the Holy Spirit. And so you became a model to all the believers in Macedonia and Achaia.
Hope, peace, joy and love. We’ll see these words posted all over this season. But what do they mean? How can we embrace them biblically and carry them with us as we journey through the Christmas season?
The truth is these words frame the gifts of the Christmas holiday. They describe that which Christ brings to us as Emmanuel; God with us.
Please join us this Advent* season for our series Contagious; moving from cliché to contagious with the gifts of Christ.
We’ll celebrate the season with great Christmas worship and the lighting of the Advent candle at the beginning of the service by new friends to our church each sharing their stories.
