Sunday December 30 "Appearing" Pastor Wood
THEME: Celebrate His Birth
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given (Is 9:2–7). In Bethlehem, Jesus is born of the virgin Mary; an event heralded by angels and marveled at by shepherds (Lk 2:1–20). The Lord reigns! Let us celebrate his birth and applaud his marvelous works (Ps 96). Christ is our blessed hope, who redeems us from sin and offers salvation to all who follow him (Tit 2:11–14).
