ADVENT WK 3
HOPE, LOVE, JOY, PEACE
Then the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. Luke 2: 10
Joy is a key word in the biblical accounts of the birth of Christ. Joy is at the center of the announcement of the birth to the shepherds and to the world and to us. May this Christmas we experience the great Joy of the Lord!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Come as you are. We're here as an open sanctuary of hope to Shawnee. We are a community of friends and FAMILIES devoted to sharing God's love with the entire neighborhood, especially those who are hurting.
Our worship is all about passionately expressing our love for God, in the liberty of His presence, whether singing a modern chorus or a traditional hymn, whether in quiet reverence or with joyful noise!
Our faith is not a set of rules, it's a lifestyle of freedom in Christ. He is here with us today through His Holy Spirit, to have a relationship with us, to guide, to help, to love, and to save us.
The pastor's message is always meant to encourage, edify, and instruct us in applying God's word to our everyday lives. It's principles help us live a more satisfying and victorious life no matter what challenges we face.
