Christmas Stories
alt text
Matthew’s Gospel contains a powerful account of the traditional Christmas Story including the appearance of angels, and a visit from the Magi of the East. But when we think of the Christmas Story in Matthew’s Gospel, we too often start at the 18th verse. In fact, many times we completely skip reading the first 17 verses that Matthew penned. But these verses contain more than just a list of names in the ancestral history of Jesus. Hidden among the names are five women whose lives represent dramatic stories of God’s Grace poured out throughout history. Stories which foreshadowed the grace of the Messiah and the plan of God the Father to offer redemption to the Jewish people as well as the entire world.

Join us on Sunday mornings at 10am this December, and for a special Christmas Eve service on the 24th as we take a look at these Stories of Grace and how they shape the Christmas Story and the overall Gospel! Don't forget to follow us on Facebook and YouTube to catch up on any sermons you miss!
