Prayer Focus of the Week: Sharing Jesus with Others

Scripture Reading: Luke 2:10-14 (ESV):

10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

14 “Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

Silent Night

Silent night, holy night!
All is calm, all is bright.
Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child.
Holy infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight.
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia,
Christ the Saviour is born!
Christ the Saviour is born

Silent night, holy night!
Son of God love’s pure light.
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth


Advent & Christmas Eve Service – In the holiday season, we have a unique dichotomy that exists. Here is a season that should be marked by thanksgiving, joy, generosity, appreciation, and love. At the same time, our calendars become overrun with holiday events and activities, our time is spent shopping and spending, and our focus is often on trying to keep our head above water…waiting for things to finally come to an end. This sparks a new sermon series that directs our hearts and minds to the way we should be living as followers of Jesus. Particularly, our attitude toward God and toward others in the advent season. Advent is a time of waiting and expecting. We must wait in anticipation of Jesus’ return with purpose and intentionality. Hence the title of our series: “Waiting with Purpose”. The series culminates with a special Christmas Eve service on December 24th @ 5pm. This is a great opportunity to invite friends and family!

Life Groups – Our Life Groups are on a break for the holidays and will resume in mid-January.

Fight Clubs are same-gender groups of about three people encouraging each other to live a life aligned with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The ultimate goal is to love Jesus more, through our affection for him and our allegiance to him, by helping each other rehearse the gospel and fight sin. Fight Clubs strive to meet at least twice a month for an intentional, focused time devoted to the routines below. For more information or to sign up contact:
