2020 has been such a weird time in everyones life. So many things have been unclear and uncertain, leaving us fatigued from it all. With this in mind, we have pivoted a bit with our annual Journey Church Christmas weekend. We have decided to share traditional Christmas songs and passages like we might have heard years ago at our favorite Christmas Eve services.
One of our Journey youth recently said, ‘If 2020 needs anything, it really needs Christmas this year.” We have taken his advice and will tell the Christmas story through various Bible passages and corresponding familiar Christmas songs.
We are praying the Christmas story will come alive for you this year. As an additional effort to bring everyone together Christmas 2020, we’re streaming the entire service, including music, songs, and messages. You can join in person or digital online, both Journey Sat@6pm or Sun@10:30am.
If you are healthy and ready to see others in person for Journey Christmas with friends and family, this is your chance. We are excited to celebrate the birth of Jesus together. We are ready to safely welcome you with plenty of room, 6 feet apart. If you are still uncertain this is the right time for you to join in person Journey worship, that’s OK. You may want to start a digital watch party from your home and share in this Christmas celebration virtual this year.
Just like our year 2020, the world had lots of uncertainty until Jesus arrived on Christmas Day in Bethlehem; it changed everything. No matter what the circumstances of this crazy year, Jesus birth changes everything.
Jesus loves you. Those three words change everything.
“Mary was engaged to Joseph and traveled with him to Bethlehem. She was soon going to have a baby, and while they were there, she gave birth to her firstborn son. She dressed him in baby clothes and laid him on a bed oof hay, because there was no room for them in the inn.
That night in the fields near Bethlehem some shepherds were guarding their sheep. All at once an angel came down to them from the Lord, and the brightness of the Lord’s glory flashed around them. The shepherds were frightened.
But the angel said, ‘don’t be afraid! I have good news for you, which will make everyone happy. This very day in King David’s hometown a Savior was born for you. He is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:5-11 CEV
