Come to the Manger

Standard

christmas ornaments and bowsI’d like to wish everyone a blessed Christmas. If you are in driving distance, I hope you will join us for Christmas Eve worship at 5, 7 or 10:00. We have worked to provide a refreshing moment of peace in the presence of Christ to highlight your celebrations.

There is something deeply peaceful about staring into a warm fire on a chilly night. The Bible says, The Lord is my light & my salvation. Later in Isaiah it describes a time when we who live with great conflict will experience great peace. There is nothing that can match the kind of peace Jesus brings.

When we come to the manger, we know we aren’t coming to a baby, we are coming to the risen one who deeply wants to bless us.

During our time together we will enjoy Christmas songs, Christmas scripture and quiet moments of reflection on the Prince of Peace. As we close our year in worship together, we will share the simple, powerful light of His peace.

When we come to the manger, we know we aren’t coming to a baby, we are coming to the risen one who deeply wants to bless us. For us the manger is not a pace but a person: Jesus, the Son of God. This Christmas Eve why not come to the manger… there is peace at the manger because of the cross.

May His peace anchor your life and overflow in your heart.

Luke 2:10 “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; 11 for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, 14 “Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”
