The Gifts of Christmas

The Gift of Peace

Date: December 24, 2018 | Speaker:

In December 1914, several countries were engaged in one of the bloodiest battles the world had ever seen. But they reached a stalemate and could not advance any further. The troops dug trenches and continued to lob artillery at one another. Then something unexpected and amazing happened on Christmas Eve. Both sides began to sing “Silent Night”, and as their voices filled the cold night air, peace filled their hearts, and soon they met in the middle to shake hands as friends and brothers. Jesus is the only One who can bring true peace into our troubled lives. Do you know this peace?

The Gifts of Christmas

The Gift of Salvation

Date: December 23, 2018 | Speaker:

You have probably received some strange gifts at different times in your life; things that ended up in a closet or in the attic because you simply had no use for them. But once in a while you get a gift that seems perfectly suited for you. When Jesus came into the world, He brought us the costliest, most thoughtful and most practical gift ever given — the gift of salvation. It is the one gift you cannot afford to live without, or die without! He is offering it to you today. Have you ever received it?

The Gifts of Christmas

The Gift of Comfort

Date: December 16, 2018 | Speaker:

For many people, Christmas is their favorite time of the year. They enjoy fireplaces, hot chocolate and gatherings with family and friends. But for others, Christmas is the most difficult time of the year. For them it stirs painful memories of a broken relationship, or a loved one who is no longer alive. When Jesus came into the world, He brought us the gift of comfort. If you’re hurting today, you don’t have to suffer alone. Jesus longs to give you this gift of comfort!

The Gifts of Christmas

The Gift of Hope

Date: December 2, 2018 | Speaker:

If we’re not careful, it’s easy for all our hopes and prayers to revolve around us. “God, please take away these problems… give me more money… a happier marriage… a nicer house…” While there’s nothing wrong with having hopes and dreams, we often fail to realize that our greatest needs are actually much deeper. Jesus came to give us a brand new kind of hope, one that truly satisfies and lasts forever! Is your hope in Him?

How Christmas Changes Your Future

Date: December 17, 2017 | Speaker:

Joseph and Mary would never have planned for their lives to turn out the way they did. They wouldn’t have chosen all the hardship, criticism and inconvenience that the birth of this Baby brought into their lives. Yet they willingly accepted God’s plan because they surrendered their future to Him. Becoming a follower of Christ means that your future is not your own. Are you willing to accept whatever that may bring for His glory?

How Christmas Changes Your Present

Date: December 10, 2017 | Speaker:

Does the birth of Jesus actually make any difference in our lives today, right here and now in our present circumstances? Yes, it does! When Jesus came into the world, He was “God with us”, and because God is with us, every moment of our lives is radically different. Because of His abiding presence, we can face the confusing, troubling situations of life without fear, knowing that He will never leave us or forsake us.

How Christmas Changes Your Past

Date: December 3, 2017 | Speaker:

Matthew begins his gospel by listing the genealogy of Jesus, and he includes people in that list who did some very evil things. Why would Matthew want to highlight the dirt instead of sweeping it under the rug? Because he wanted us to know that the forgiveness Christ came to bring is available to everyone, regardless of their past. Have you ever brought your past to Jesus, or are you still carrying it all by yourself?

Prince of Peace

Date: January 1, 2017 | Speaker:

Look at the news headlines any day of the week and you’ll see a world filled with terrorism, war, hatred, violence and fear. Yet sometimes the worst kind of turmoil and unrest can be found in our own lives! We say we’re saved, but we have no peace in our heart. Isaiah promised that Christ would be our Prince of Peace. Do you truly have His peace today?

Christmas Eve 2016

Date: December 24, 2016 | Speaker:

The birth of Jesus would have been very different if you and I had arranged the details. We would have chosen a better place for Him to be born instead of an unsanitary stable. We might have chosen a different time in history, a different city, even different parents. But God knew exactly what He was doing when He chose such lowly circumstances, and our lives are forever changed because of it.

Everlasting Father

Date: December 18, 2016 | Speaker:

In the deepest part of our hearts, we all long to find endless love. Songs and books have been written about it, movies have been made about it, and yet none of us have ever known a perfect, unbroken endless love from another person. But the Bible tells us about a love that will never come to an end, not even when we die. Have you ever received this gift of everlasting love?

Mighty God

Date: December 11, 2016 | Speaker:

Exactly who was that baby born in Bethlehem? Was He really sent from heaven, or was He just an ordinary man, and what difference does it make either way? The Bible calls Him the Mighty God. If that’s true, then the consequences for not believing in Him are enormous! What decision have you made about that baby in the manger?

Wonderful Counselor

Date: December 4, 2016 | Speaker:

The stress of our daily lives and the uncertainties of the world in which we live can leave us filled with fear and despair, and even the best counselors will admit they don’t have all the answers. But Jesus, whose birth we celebrate at Christmas, was called the Wonderful Counselor. He not only cares about all our troubles, but He knows exactly what to do about them because He is the very embodiment of wisdom and knowledge. Have you talked with this Wonderful Counselor lately?
