December 2016

ADVENT
During the Advent season, we look back and remember Christ's first coming. The promised Messiah came to earth as a baby. Jesus Christ came humbly, lived perfectly, died brutally, and rose victoriously.
So Advent is a time of remembering the baby at Bethlehem. And yet Advent is also a time where we long for Christ's second coming. The day that he will come back to rescue the people whom he has redeemed by his blood. As a church we joyfully celebrate Christ's first coming and patiently anticipate his second.
