...The pivot point in Scripture between "fear" and "fear not" is the birth of Christ. As we prepare to celebrate the birth of the one called Immanuel - which means ‘God with us’ - we pray you'll join us to consider how Jesus' birth speaks directly to our fears this Christmas season.
… because He is with us. Our Advent series will look at ways fear keeps us from God; fear of missing out on His plan for us, fear of being asked to do the impossible, fear of our shortcomings and failures, and even a misplaced fear of God Himself. We will explore the message of hope that marked Christ's entrance into the world, and we will seek to understand how the Advent of His birth is filled with God's primary Christmas message, "Don't be afraid."
