Songs of Christmas Praise
Series: Bethlehem
In worship December 29, we placed a strong focus on Christmas Carol singing. We know that Carols are important but sometimes we don't get to sing that special Carol we love. We included a list of 15 carols and invited the congregation to choose one near and dear to their hearts and to briefly share what that carol meant to them.

    Place of Potential
    Series: Bethlehem
    You are brimming with potential....On Sunday the story of Bethlehem spoke of our potential and God's desire to meet us and the world in miraculous ways. This is wonderful news but also a challenge. Just as Mary and Joseph had to move from Nazareth to Bethlehem, we too need to move toward the work God is preparing. What might that be for you? What small step can you take toward the work of God?

    Place of Pain
    Series: Bethlehem
    We typically don't like to hear about or experience pain. This can be especially true during the holiday season. But it remains true that all people, in varying degrees, carry bruises and wounds. The Christmas story is honest about this. Bethlehem had a painful history and this is where God chose to enter the world. Bethlehem, where Rachel's last son was named Ben-Oni, Son of my sorrow, became the place where the healing of salvation first kissed this wounded world. In this season of Christmas, you're invited to take inventory of your wounds and to offer them to the One who is our Healer and Prince of Peace.

    Place of Promise
    Series: Bethlehem
    Promises are powerful. They provide a sense of assurance when circumstances tempt us to worry. Promises provide hope when all around screams despair. The story of Bethlehem is a story of God's promise of redemption, reconciliation, home-coming, God's "Welcome home!" Have you tasted this deep, full, welcoming-home-love? Believing in God is one thing. Believing that God is at work for good is one thing. Experiencing the rich depth of God's love and acceptance is much different. It is life healing and life transforming. Bethlehem is a place of promise. A promise worth waiting for. A promise worth pursuing.
