We started a new series today, “Christmas Outside The Box”. I had a lot of fun with the message. Spoke about everybody’s most favorite thing in the world, waiting. I say that jokingly but in reality the bible teaches us that waiting is a gift sent from God. We are made like Christ in the waiting, in the preparation, the resting, and sometimes we get sidetracked.
We had a great group this morning with more new faces, they just keep coming every week. We are going to soon grow out of the facility we are in, the writing is on the wall.
The praise team started with the first Christmas song of the season and it was great, “Mary Did You Know.”
Here are a few comments from the social media on the day.
