We believe that Advent is the antidote to a hurried holiday. As a church family, we want to take a slow walk to the manger.
We hope that you have been joining us on this Advent journey as we’ve been taking some intentional time to slow down and consider Jesus in a deeper way this Christmas season.
For the final week in our series leading up to Christmas, I want to share a quote from Paul Tripp with you about love, written in response to Isaiah 53:1-12.
“Jesus was willing to be despised. He was willing to be rejected. He was willing to subject himself to hatred and violence. He was even willing to have the Father turn his back on him…so that, as his children, you and I would be able to live in the hope and peace of knowing that no matter what we face in the human community, we are perfectly and eternally loved by him.”
How amazing is that! Sit in this love this week, but don’t just be a consumer of it, be a giver of it. Look for intentional ways to give this gift of love to your family, friends and neighbors this week.
Also, if you’ve you missed any of our Sunday worship gatherings during Advent, you can check out the recordings online.
And, be sure to join us for this last week of readings in our Advent guide, as we’ve partnered with Brainerd Baptist Church to produce a great resource to help you engage this season in a significant way.
Also check out our service times and other Advent resources and study tools.
And be sure to follow us on social media for daily content.
Join our Christmas service, this Friday night @ 6:30! We will not gather on Christmas day.
