The first purpose of Christmas is celebration! We learn this from the angel’s opening statement to the shepherds of Bethlehem. God had wonderful news for us that would cause us all to rejoice, celebrate, and throw a party: “I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.” Luke 2:10 (NIV)
The good news of Christmas is worth celebrating for three reasons. It is personal: “I bring YOU.” It is positive: “GOOD news of great joy.” And it is universal: “for ALL the people.” It doesn’t matter who you are, what you’ve done, where you’ve been, or where you’re headed — this news is for you.
A national magazine used to carry a feature called “News You Can Use.” I always read that section first. The angel brought us news we can use. It’s the best news in the world:
God loves you! God is with you! God is for you!
Christmas is a time to celebrate that God loves you!
Christmas Begins with Christ
Wise men still seek Him

The Christmas Dilemma
Firehouse (Grades 6-12)
Nobody expected the arrival of a baby to shake up their lives. But when that baby is Jesus, plans are rearranged, beliefs are challenged, and ordinary people find their lives forever changed.
Join Firehouse for this production on December 16th at 9 AM & 11:30 AM in Firehouse.
Destiny house (Preschool – 5th grade)
Generosity is at the very core of God’s character—He even gave us His own son, Jesus! Jesus showed unwavering generosity as He traded His life for ours.
We pray that this Christmas, as kids celebrate God’s amazing generosity, they’ll see how they can be generous with their family, friends, and neighbors.
It’s the most Wonderful Time of the Year
