November 24 “Christian Holy Days” selected passages from the Gospels
All time is God’s time and the liturgical calendar reminds us of this. Today we will celebrate a year in a day, the gospel story through the holy days of the New Testament! As always digital readers can click on blue highlighted text for Bible verses articles and more. The link from “Christian Holy Days” in this section leads to a particularly good article about the Christian Year, why we celebrate it and how it brings us closer to Christ.

As the root from the stump of Jesse grew into the family tree of Jesus may the Light cause us to grow in peace and hope. Come find your joy today!

The Light of Truth
Dec 15: 3rd Sunday of Advent
There's a difference between knowing the facts and knowing the truth. - Chris-myth Busters.
Join us this Sunday as iSing, our children’s choir present a Christmas musical "Chris-myth Busters!" Ethan has a new brother, Michael. Only Michael's not a cute little bundle of joy. He's a pretty big kid... adopted... and an annoying trivia buff. When Michael starts busting some myths about Christmas to Ethan's friends they begin to wonder: Were there 3 wise men? Was Jesus born on December 25? Did the angels SING? As they turn to scripture they discover that while some facts about the first Christmas might be unclear, the truth about why Jesus came is everywhere.
Communion will be a part of our worship this morning in the tradition of the Disciples. In addition to iSing, Belles with Bells will be playing this morning!

This Christmas you may be facing an unexpected set back—but the Message is clear—God loves you so much he sent his son, not only to die but to LIVE! Will you let the Light of Christ live in you?
