A Christmas Message:


What was the last invitation you received? Maybe it was something formal like a mailed wedding invitation, or perhaps something informal like a text message from a friend inviting you to coffee. Maybe it was someone in your home asking you with a smile to watch a movie together. There is joy in being chosen and invited.

Some shepherds received an amazing invitation on the first Christmas. An angel proclaimed, “Today in the town of David, a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord.” It was a once-in-the-history-of-the-world invitation! The shepherds responded, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened.” Let’s go and see—what a beautiful response!

We offer well over a hundred Adventures trips throughout the year. Almost all youth participate because someone invited them. Mike experienced inflatable kayaking and camping for the first time this summer because of an invitation. Mike had no experience with the church or with Jesus. Yet under the stars, for the first time, he heard about how much Jesus loves him. And for the first time, as he pondered this truth, he opened his heart to hear more about what a relationship with Jesus means. It started with an invitation.

Thank you for your prayers and support this year that has allowed students like Mike to go and see who Jesus is and hear how much He loves each of us!

Merry Christmas!

Joy To The World

How amazing that God gives hope that does not disappoint us! After receiving such an amazing gift, it is natural that we desire to give to others out of our overflow. Christmas is a great time for us to give to others as we remember what God gave us.
