The King of Glory Comes

Give Thanks

He Came Down



November 17th – Christmas, It’s Not Your Birthday!


November 24th – Expect a Miracle!

Who gets top billing in our Christmas celebrations? Santa Claus or Jesus? Too often, the two morph together into a magical Santa Claus deity that comes just to grant our wishes. We tend to confuse magic and miracle, craving a magical, holly-jolly holiday rather than an experience of the miracle that God came to earth in such a humble form.

December 1st – Giving Up on Perfect


December 8th – Scandalous Love


December 15th – Jesus’ Wish List


December 22 – Children’s Christmas Pageant 


December 29th – TBD


January 5th – By A Different Road
