“The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God is with us’). Isaiah 7:14 NLT
Ten days before Christmas Day is a busy time for everyone. Last minute shopping and meals to prepare are ever pressing each day. I pray you and your family are healthy and have scheduled times for gathering with family and friends during the Christmas holiday.
I hope you are also planning to join us for worship gathering times at Journey Community Christian Church. A reminder, this year Christmas Eve is Saturday and Christmas Day is Sunday. Journey has scheduled for you and your family meaningful Christmas times with Journey Sat@6pm Christmas Eve and then Journey Sun@10:30am Christmas Day.
Make a note for yourself. Invite someone to join us who may not have a church family to be with during Christmas celebrations. We are always, better together. You might want to explain our current three week series, WHAT’S CHRISTMAS ABOUT? Our worship team has planned several special features with music and message for helping everyone enjoy Christmas Eve and Christmas Day 2022 together this year.
Before Christmas Day arrives, this weekend at Journey Church is part two in our Christmas series. Last weekend we discovered getting our priorities in order can make this the best Christmas ever. If you missed last weekend, here are the footnotes: God must come first, share Good News that Jesus is for everybody, and never forget the poor.
And this weekend we’ll share more of the BIBLICAL background and context in the Christmas story. Have you ever wondered WHY naming things REALLY matters so much? Names are significant. How did you get your name? I imagine your parents may have had a purpose behind your name. Names usually mean something.
This weekend we discover NAMES are important in the Bible. If you are curious and want to know more this outline will help. We’ll share why naming something or someone is kind of a big deal at Christmas. Join us for: WHAT’S CHRISTMAS ABOUT?
This can be the best Christmas ever. MERRY CHRISTmas!
