What is the meaning of Christmas?

Christmas is more than gifts for family and friends. It is a time when believers come together to celebrate Jesus Christ, the greatest gift. We celebrate Christmas because of this ‘Good News’, the birth of Jesus. Why did Jesus have to be born and come to earth? At the very beginning of time, Adam and Eve disobeyed God and that created a separation between God and man. God wanted to restore the broken relationship. So he sent his one and only son. Jesus Christ was born in a manger, lived a sinless life, died on a Roman cross, was buried in a borrowed tomb, and rose on the third day. He paid the penalty for our disobedience. He now lives in Heaven, where you can live eternally with Him. All you have to do is accept His gift of an eternal and abundant life.

His Mission

Project Christmas Hope

Christmas is a time of celebration, yet many families in our community will not have a celebration or gift under the tree as they are struggling just to survive. Adopt a family through Christmas Hope and provide the gifts that will make Christmas a season of Hope through your generosity. Visit CHRISTMAS HOPE for more information.

Kid’s Kupboard collections are underway. For the 2018 school year the Winter break is over two weeks. You can help by first, pray for our children, their families, and school staff and second, donate food items. Anyone may participate along with the age groups.
