"Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests." Luke 2:14
With these words, the multitude of the heavenly hosts were proclaiming, finally, humanity would be reconciled--have peace and fellowship-with the Lord God when Jesus removed our sin. Take time this Christmas and join the heavenly hosts in proclaiming, "Glory to God in the highest!" Certainly He is worthy of your praise and is working all things out in a way that will bring you His peace and great joy.
Join us on Sunday at 9:30am, as we continue our series, Portraits of Christmas and light the second candle of Advent: Peace. This week, we are going to look at Mary, the mother of Jesus. We are going to look at her story and we are going to look at her song. Her life is an example to us of what service to God looks like. First, Mary acknowledges that she was in need of a Savior and she looked to God for that salvation. Mary's song is a beautiful expression of both praise and worship of God. Her song is about God and an exaltation of who God is. Mary's song is from her heart and exalts the loving God by giving Him His rightful position as Lord and Savior. Let's fill our minds and hearts with Mary's song of praise to God and glimpse the wonder and promise of Christmas!
Adult Discipleship Class Study: 11:00am. Join us for a special Christmas study.
