Kraft's Comments
Hello Church,

We've started our Christmas series. We have made Christmas a lot of things in our culture -  I hope that during our celebrations we will never forget:
Above all things Christmas is God drawing near to unholy, unworthy, undeserving people.  Christmas is God moving in our direction.  Christmas is a holy and perfect God looking us in the eye and inviting us to be His friend in spite of our sin.  Christmas is forgiveness replacing condemnation. Christmas is grace elevated above the law.  Christmas is light illuminating darkness.  Christmas is life defeating death.

Our Christmas Eve service starts at 4:30 with a Cookies, Coffee, & Cocoa fellowship hosted by the pastor's spouses. The actual service will begin at 5:00.  We'll celebrate communion and baptisms, sing new and classic Christmas music, and light candles.  Don't miss it!
