During this unusual Christmas of sheltering-in-place, we have cause to celebrate that Jesus has brought God’s light into our darkened world.
Not gathering with loved ones this Christmas is disappointing and not gathering for Christmas Eve worship is discouraging. However, the county and state stay-at-home order has helped redirect the focus of Christmas to its true meaning this year. The birth of Jesus brings great joy filled with peace and hope to a world surrounded by fear, uncertainty, and darkness.
The nativity story is at the heart of understanding who God is: “I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in me will not remain in darkness” --John 12:46. May God’s unconditional and sacrificial love revealed in Jesus be in your heart and home, and give you hope for our world.

We continue our tradition of celebrating babies born in 2020 to parents, grandparents and great-grandparents of our church family this year with a commemorative blog posted on our website later this week.
