Welcoming All, Empowered by Christ, Sent Forth to Serve

December 13, 2020 message: “Jesus: Emmanuel”

God with us is a powerful expression, especially in this year when we have faced a pandemic and so much more. In Jesus, God experiences our humanity, reveals himself to humanity, and is truly with us always. Emmanuel also give us our mission – to “put flesh on” God’s love for each other.

This is the second week in the series, “Incarnation: Rediscovering the Significance of Christmas.” “Born This Day” reminds of us of the many names of Jesus. Pastor Mary’s message is based on Hebrews 1: 1-3, Isaiah 7: 14-16, and Matthew 1: 22-23. To read it, click here. Take a moment to watch, “Emmanuel.”

Today’s hands-on item, a photo card, reminds us that Jesus is always with us. “We Miss Your Smile” cards are one way we can be God’s presence in the world for someone else. Contact the church office at 231-798-2181 if you would additional cards.

The service is available in its entirety on FaceBook and YouTube.
