Sermons from December 2019
Pastor Vince puts his own spin on the Christmas song, “Winter Wonderland.” He shares of Someone Who has come to sing a new song in our lives that is “here to stay.” That new song is a love song that God is singing to us. He sings, “I want to be with you.” He sings this love song “as we go along” every day of our lives. John 1:14
Those familiar with the Christmas story know that the wise men used a star to find Jesus. The star was a visible display of guidance provided by God for them. Pastor Vince reminds us that God guides our lives daily not by a star but by a defining moment. What is that specific defining moment? Take a listen to find out. Luke 2
Pastor Greg continues his teaching in Ruth this week. While Ruth is not a traditional Christmas passage, it does take place in Bethlehem. Pastor Greg points out that “if we don’t have this story in Bethlehem, we don’t have the other story in Bethlehem that we are very familiar with.” Why is the title of this sermon “Handfuls of Purpose?” Listen in to find out.
Pastor Vince begins his Christmas series in the book of Habakkuk 3:17-19. Take a minute to read those three verses as it’s an interesting place to start. How does he tie them in to the Christmas story? Listen in to this very encouraging message. “God uses the context of pain as the wrapping paper for the gifts of the comfort of His promises and the comfort of His presence.” Luke 1:5-23
Pastor Vince continues his teaching in 1 Corinthians and asks what is it that causes us to gather together? It is our common identity as God’s children, our common commitment to the Word of God, and our common purpose which is God’s glory. 1 Corinthians 3:8-23
