The Gift of Christmas: Jesus our Gospel
Colossians 1:1-8; 28-29/ Pastor James

The two high celebrations of the church are Christmas and Easter. Every year, for centuries now, it has been not only traditional but also been right to do what the church does, and that is, you look straight at Jesus at these times. In the weeks going up to Christmas, we look straight at who he is. On the weeks leading up to Easter, we look straight at what he did. Who is the One who came, and what did he come to do? Therefore, we look at his person and at his work.


During these four Sundays coming right up to Christmas, we’re going to look at Colossians 1. I would actually urge you to read it during the week, and not just the passage that’s coming up, but just read through the chapter and study it this month, because there’s no higher picture of Christ, there’s no loftier or (another way to put it) more penetrating (to mix the metaphors) or greater picture of Christ than that in Colossians 1.

Jonathan and Mia Jaffery

Today we're going to pray for Jonathan and Mia Jaffery who serve in one of the African countries. They are our missionaries because our church supports them through our church's Cooperative Program giving.


  
 

We are excited to introduce a brand-new initiative that will help help reach our community with the Gospel through a partnership with blesseveryhome.com.

 

You will hear more about this is weeks to come but here is a simple acronym for starters:        

  • - Begin with prayer. We want you to ask, ‘God how do you want me to bless the people in the places you’ve sent me to?’
  • - Listen. Don’t talk, but listen to people, their struggles, their pains, in the places God sent you.
  • - Eat. You can’t just check this off. It’s not quick. You have to have a meal with people or a cup of coffee. It builds relationships.
  • - Serve. If you listen with people and you eat with people, they will tell you how to love them and you’ll know how to serve them.
  • - Story. When the time is right, now we talk, and we share the story of how Jesus changed our life.
