We will be gathering a little sooner this Sunday-10.30, to share in some treats before our family Christmas celebration starts at 10.45.
There will be no church service on Dec. 26.
This photo is from a live nativity and the baby is real. A reminder that all the nativity scenes that we see at this time of year depict an actual event-the birth of Jesus, who came to earth as a tiny baby to be our sacrifice. His death on the cross made it possible for us to have eternal life.
As we celebrate His birth, let us remember that the manger scene led to the cross.
