This is Real Christmas

As the cold weather and winter-season snows bear down, it’s not just the physical challenge of winter-time that proves a struggle. As we see the barren-ness of the trees, our hearts can feel like they’ve lost something as well. The sting of the winds seems to run to the deepest part of us. And there’s the darkness… A later-rising sun that rolls away from us earlier, too, leaves us uncertain about what we’ll see when it finally gets around to shining. Snow that has to be blown? The ache of slow-moving traffic?

This is when we truly need some hope. Hearing once again about a promise of a some-what absurd Savior who is born into the world that He created. Singing songs in the warmth of other voices that remind us we’re not alone. Worshiping a  Lord who has come to bring light to our days — especially those days when we feel it most. When we need it most… This is real Christmas, when we hear God’s promise fulfilled: “they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”)—Matthew 1:23.

Come discover some warmth for your heart. Join us, as together we see the “light that shines in the darkness”. Come and find hope even in this blustery, wintry season at the birth of our Savior, in the humility of a manger. Gather with us as we worship Him!
