The Road to Bethlehem

Sunday, December 11, 4:00 PM in the Sanctuary

followed by catered desserts and coffee on the patio

Bethlehem seemed an unlikely destination for the fulfillment of God’s promise to send a Messiah. Bethlehem? Why would anyone – especially the Creator of the universe – choose that little remote village? Nothing good came from there! There was nothing distinguished or glamorous about this common town. But as Scripture records, the road to Bethlehem was the road that ultimately led to God!


Mary and Joseph took that road. The shepherds and the Magi did as well. And now you have been invited to take that journey, to experience in fresh and powerful ways the eternal hope that lies waiting for us in the form of a newborn Baby. The prophet Isaiah challenged those anticipating the promised arrival of Jesus that they should…prepare the way for the Lord; make straight in the wilderness a highway for our God. (Isaiah 40:3)

Deadline December 14

Thank you!

Once again, the generosity of our church, along with family and friends, shines through with 154 Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes prepared for children in need. The work party packed up the crates and delivered them to our collection center at Refuge Church, to be transported next week to the Regional Center in Fullerton. What a blessing it is to be part of a worldwide mission.
