God calls us to be disciples of Jesus, building community through
service and fellowship and sharing the love of Christ with all.
Advent 3: Joy
Sermon: Joy is Our True Home
We sing “Jesus, Joy of Man’s Desiring”: Jesus, joy of man's desiring, holy wisdom, love most bright….”Home is not only a place but also a state of mind. Home is where the heart is. Advent for some people becomes Blue Christmas. This may be difficult for people who suffer from depression, sick or losing loved one. Even with these challenges, I believe that God calls us into experiences of true joy, as the first Christmas people did. Paul addressed people who faced a sense of darkness, “Rejoice always!” Joy is not just an expression of being happy. God’s life-giving and transforming grace and love brings real joy to us.

Advent … Coming Home
Do you remember how good it felt to go home for Christmas the first time you weren’t living at home anymore ?
This year, we’re going to be thinking about COMING HOME FOR CHRISTMAS—coming home to our family, coming home to Bethlehem, coming home to our church family, coming home to God.
Join us, all are welcome.
There’s a place for YOU here this Christmas and throughout the year.
