Raising the Bar of Thanksgiving

November 19, 2017

November 19, 2017 • Pastor Dave Dick • James 1:1-2

This Sunday we will focus on the importance of a grateful heart as we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving. James has much to say to this young church regarding authentic faith, but woven into his words is the importance of a heart of gratitude. Just as he does in every area of Christian living, James raises the bar of thanksgiving. Be sure and join us on Wednesday evening for our Thanksgiving Eve service beginning at 7:00pm, as we gives thanks together as the church and celebrate Holy Communion focusing our thanksgiving on Jesus. This is always a special evening so please plan to join us on Thanksgiving Eve.

Welcome to Bethlehem Love

December 16, 2018 • December 16, 2018 • Pastor Dave Dick

How do we measure the depth of love that others have for us? When it comes to our family and friends we may have multiple expectations that give us a sense of how deep their love is for us, but what about God's love for us. How do we measure the depth of His love for us? This week as we continue on our Christmas series "Welcome to Bethlehem" we will consider how to measure Bethlehem love.

The Light of Christmas - A Place for New Beginnings

December 9, 2018 • December 9, 2018 • Pastor Dave Dick

When our girls were younger, Mollee and I made it a point to drive around as a family to see Christmas lights. This tradition was an important part of our Christmas season...blankets with a little hot chocolate and off to enjoy the sights of the season...but Christmas lights are more than just a beautiful decoration. Christmas lights also serve as a reminder for us each year...that the very first Christmas...a light came into a dark world and that light is Jesus. This week as we continue in our Christmas series "Welcome to Bethlehem" we will consider the result of this light and the fact that indeed Bethlehem is a place for new beginnings.
