Third Sunday of Advent “Rediscovering Joy in Our Discouragement”

ReDiscover Christmas Series Week 3: December 11, “Rediscovering Joy in Our Discouragement” Because Christ has come to be God with us, we can experience joy no matter what discouragement we are experiencing. Joy is a natural desire that God has placed within us as a reflection of His own joyful nature. The joy of the Lord strengthens and sustains us. Scriptures: Nehemiah 8:9-12; Luke 1:39-47. Jennifer Burns preaching.

ReDiscover Christmas Series Week 4: December 18, “Rediscovering Love in Our Differences” God is love and love is embodied by Jesus. The love of Jesus is the love that defines and propels us. This love empowers us to cross the borders of differences and overcome the walls of division. In reaching out to others, and to the glory of God, this love overcomes. Scriptures: 1 John 4:7-16; John 13:34-35. Kirk Peterson preaching.

ReDiscover Christmas Series Christmas Eve: December 24, “Rediscovering Jesus is Here” In Jesus we find hope in our uncertainties, peace in our struggles, joy in our discouragement, and love in our differences. Jesus is here for us to rediscover and find in our life and in our world. Jesus is Emmanuel, God with us. Scriptures: Matthew 1:18-23; Luke 2:1-20. Jennifer Burns preaching at 5:00; Kirk Peterson at 8 & 11.
