Christmas is a time of celebration and joy. It is also a time to reflect on Jesus in our lives. We reflect in a number of ways. First, we remind ourselves of Jesus’ incarnation - His coming in human form to be God with us, our Immanuel. Second, we reflect on what Jesus’ has done for us - our salvation and peace with God that comes with accepting Jesus in faith. Finally, we reflect on the fact that we are called to love our neighbor as Jesus has loved us. We have an opportunity to do this in a practical way next week. We, as a church, can serve people in Family Promise. If you have served before, sign-up for a slot below. If you have never served in Family Promise, jump in this week! If God is leading you to serve, call Jane Burge at (305) 987-6696 or click on the link below.

Family Promise Week - Dec. 9-16: What better way to show appreciation for what Jesus has done for us this Christmas than serving others! Sign-up here to volunteer.

Upcoming Events

Children's Ministry

This week Rock Kids will be digging into the story of when John the baptist prepared the way for Jesus' coming, found in John 1:19-34. The kids will learn the Bible point "God came to be with us." We want to help the kids see the exciting news that John the Baptist declared- that God became human in the form of Jesus, because he wanted to be with us. Knowing that God wants to be with us, we want to help kids look for God in their lives, and to share that news with others.
