After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”
“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.”
And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High; for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for him, to give his people the knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins.
Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.”
It was great to see the turnout we had at the Christmas Festival this past Sunday. If anyone has any pictures that they took that they’d like to get on the website please send me an email and I will get them on here as soon as possible. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and joy are in his dwelling place.
My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

Here is a flyer if you know some people who might enjoy an awesome time to come and have fun and get into the Christmas spirit:
You praised the gods of silver and gold, of bronze, iron, wood and stone, which cannot see or hear or understand. But you did not honor the God who holds in his hand your life and all your ways.
