Christmas Miracles (Advent, 2022 & New Year’s Day, 2023)

At Christmas, we celebrate miracles that changed the world.  To many, these miracles remain hidden. For those who are willing to see them, however, God offers power, encouragement, hope and joy. After the challenging year that we have all experienced, let’s rediscover these miracles together. Note: The Christmas Cantata will take place on Sunday, Dec 18, at both services.

Week 1: A Miraculous Birth, Matthew 1:18-24, Nov 27, 2022
