Welcoming All, Empowered by Christ, Sent Forth to Serve

December 25, 2022 message: “God Bless Us Every One!”

The Christ Child is born and we, the Body of Christ, are reborn with him. We’re called to embody peace, hope, love and joy, so how will we live this out? Scrooge could not contain his exuberance at being given the gift of living – truly living – another day. On this day of gift-giving, how will our lives continue to be a gift and a blessing for the sake of “everyone”?

This is the Christmas Day message in our series, “God Bless Us, Every One! The Redemption of Scrooge.” Pastor Mary’s message is based on John 1: 1-14.

The 10:00 am worship service is available in its entirety on YouTube.
