Unwrap the True Meaning of Christmas
Light of the World (11 AM)
The Gospel of Matthew tells us that magi followed a star to Jerusalem and then to Bethlehem to meet the Christ child. Join us on this Epiphany Sunday as we learn more about the magi, the true role of the star on their journey and consider ways in which God may speak to us in our daily lives.
Everyone will receive their own personal "star word" to prayerfully ponder throughout the year. Star words don't create joy, peace, happiness (or any other star word an individual might receive), but they do help us notice opportunities to experience them!
The weeks leading up to Christmas remind us that we are journeying toward a new way of being. We look back and celebrate Jesus’ birth while also looking forward, knowing there is more to come. Too often, however, we plow through December cleaning and decorating our homes, squeezing in Amazon orders during lunch, standing in lines and spending dollar after dollar after dollar…. It’s not uncommon for us to get overwhelmed, fall into a season of grief, get into an argument with a family member or even wish it was all over. This isn’t what God has in mind for our lives or for our celebration of Christ’s birth. God wants more for us and God wants more from us. Join us for a new sermon series, Unwrap the True Meaning of Christmas, and together we’ll explore what Christmas really is all about.
