Without Christmas we’d never fully know the wonder of God’s love. Join us Sundays in December and be amazed at the story we’ve heard so many times before. There’s more here than meets the eye.
The Wonder of a Promise

Life can be confusing, and sometimes it’s hard to see the way forward. Some of us feel alone, and Christmas may even leave us feeling more alone. But the Wonder of Christmas is ultimately a promise that you will never have to face the world alone, face your fears alone, face your hurts and pain alone. There is Someone here for you, who understands what you’re going through and is committed to you. Jesus is our Immanuel, God with us!
The Wonder of a Manger

If you wanted to make an impression - to get people’s attention - how would you do it? Large corporations and governments have big media-driven unveiling events, inviting everyone to come and see and take pictures. This is how the powerful and rich get our attention. But how does God get our attention? What does the Creator of the whole universe, the most powerful Being in existence, do? A peasant couple? A stable? A manger? Why?
The Wonder of a Name

Names mean something. Sometimes the meaning comes from what we come to associate about someone – a feeling, a remembrance. But, in biblical times names were given to signify something, to reveal a truth. Before he was even born, Mary and Joseph were each told by an angel to name their first child Jesus. What is it that God wants us to know that awakens the wonder of Christmas in us today?
The Wonder of a Star

We’ll begin by exploring the wonder of a star that first announced the birth of Christ, our Savior in the world. This star grabbed the attention of wise men from the East, who sought out this baby and worshiped him. What does their experience show us about Christ that can help to awaken the wonder of Christmas in us today?
