What is Christmas all about?

Is Christmas just about seeing family?  Presents?  Aggravation?  Debt?

Did you know that more people have heard the Christmas story from Linus, the character in Peanuts, than from anybody else. And as you watch Linus share the greatest story of all, notice that he puts aside his ever-present security blanket… the only time in the comic strip he ever does so.

I hope that you experience the true meaning of Christmas within the hope, love, peace, & joy that come from Jesus Christ. If you are at all able, make plans to attend church during this Christmas. My church’s Christmas Eve Candlelight Service is tonight @ 6:30 pm. We’d love to have you come out. For directions & more, check out our website at

I hope you have all have a Merry Christmas!

Facts that will change your life!

This past Sunday, I shared quite a few FACTS from God’s Word that are life-changing.  These truths are powerful.  It is my prayer that you not only read them, but meditate upon them.  Think about them until they become a part of you.  Chew on them, and allow them to nourish your soul.

Keep in mind, these are only a small sample of the many promises that we find in the Bible.  God’s Word in full of life-changing truths.  Read it & ask the Holy Spirit to illuminate His Word to you.  He will speak to you in a very personal & profound way.

Also, please add any verses that have helped you personally.  Add them in the comments section below.  I’m sure that what you share will be a blessing to others.
