“Beatitudes Part 2”: Blessed are the Merciful | Sunday, January 12th, 2020

Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the reign of King Herod. About that time some wise
men from eastern lands arrived in Jerusalem, asking, “Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star as it rose, and we have come to
worship him.”
 
King Herod was deeply disturbed when he heard this, as was everyone in Jerusalem. He called a meeting of the leading priests and teachers of religious law and asked,
“Where is the Messiah supposed to be born?” “In
Bethlehem in Judea,” they said, “for this is what the prophet wrote: ‘And you, O Bethlehem in the land of Judah, are not least among the ruling cities of Judah, for a ruler will come from you
who will be the shepherd for my people Israel.’”
 
Then Herod called for a private meeting with the wise men, and he learned from them the time when the star first appeared. Then he told them,
“Go to Bethlehem and search carefully for the child. And when you find him, come back and tell me so that I can go and worship him, too!”
 
After this interview the wise men went their way. And the star they had seen in the east guided them to Bethlehem. It went ahead of them and stopped over the place where the child was.
When they saw the star, they were filled with joy! They entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
-Matthew 2:1-11

“Lesson from the Magi” (Epiphany) | Sunday, January 5th, 2020

Colossians 1:9-14 For this reason,
since the day we heard about you, we
have not stopped praying for you. We
continually ask God to fill you with the
knowledge of his will through all the
wisdom and understanding that the
Spirit gives, so that you may live a life
worthy of the Lord and please him in
every way: bearing fruit in every good
work, growing in the knowledge of
God, being strengthened with all
power according to his glorious might
so that you may have great endurance
and patience, and giving joyful thanks
to the Father, who has qualified you to
share in the inheritance of his holy
people in the kingdom of light. For he
has rescued us from the dominion of
darkness and brought us into the
kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom
we have redemption, the forgiveness of
sins. – Colossians 1:9-14

“The Reason For The Birth” -Bob Vinson | Sunday December 29th, 2019

 
 

At that time the Roman emperor, Augustus, decreed that a census should be taken throughout the Roman Empire… All returned to their own ancestral towns to register for this census.  And because Joseph was a descendant of King David, he had to go to Bethlehem in Judea, David’s ancient home. He traveled there from the village of Nazareth in Galilee. He took with him Mary, to whom he was engaged, who was now expecting a child. And while they were there, the time came for her baby to be born. She gave birth to her firstborn son. She wrapped him snugly in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no lodging available for them.
Luke 2:1-14

Christmas Eve Service | Tuesday, December 24th, 2019

 
 
That night there were
shepherds staying in the fields nearby,
guarding their flocks of sheep.
Suddenly, an angel of the Lord
appeared among them, and the
radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded
them. They were terrified, but the angel
reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he
said. “I bring you good news that will
bring great joy to all people. The
Savior—yes, the Messiah, the
Lord—has been born today in
Bethlehem, the city of David! And you
will recognize him by this sign: You will
find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of
cloth, lying in a manger.”
Luke 2:8-11
“The Gift of Joy” | Sunday December 22nd, 2019

 
 
 
 
 
God showed how much he loved us
by sending his one and only Son
into the world so that we might
have eternal life through him. 
This is real love—
not that we loved God,
but that he loved us and
sent his Son as a sacrifice
to take away our sins.
– 1 John 4:9-10

“The Gift of Love” | Sunday December 15th, 2019

 
 
 
 
 
Don’t worry about anything; instead,
pray about everything. Tell God what
you need, and thank him for all he has
done. Then you will experience God’s
peace, which exceeds anything we can
understand. His peace will guard your
hearts and minds as you
live in Christ Jesus.
-Philippians 4:6-7

“Gift of Peace” | Sunday, December 8th, 2019

 
 
 
 
 
 
As a result of your ministry (of giving),
they will give glory to God.
For your generosity to them
and to all believers will prove that you
are obedient to the Good News of
Christ. – 2 Corinthians 9:13
