Christmas is Coming!

Christmas. Busy. Gifts. Family. Eating. Tiring.

Often when we think about Christmas, all of these words immediately spring to mind. We can get so overwhelmed in the busyness of the season and miss out on what is truly good and fulfilling and remarkable about this season, as we invest all our energy in attempting to find the perfect gift or prepare the perfect Christmas meal for our loved ones.

But what if there was more to Christmas than that? What if there was far more to Christmas than material gifts, food and family gatherings?

Do yourself a favour this year... take some time out and join us each Sunday in the lead up to Christmas Day as we celebrate the greatest Christmas gift, Jesus Christ our King. Matthew 1:23 (ESV) says:

"“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us)."

This is what we celebrate each and every year at Christmas. We'd love to encourage you in this special season as we come together to reflect on the coming of King Jesus - our Emmanuel - to earth.

Our Christmas series will start this Sunday the 10th of December and will conclude with a shorter message on our special Christmas Day service. I look forward to seeing you there on Sunday as we kick off this year's Christmas series *|FNAME|*!
