God With Us: Why Christmas Matters! (Dec 3 – 31)

Note: Pastor Dirk’s Sermons are also available as a podcast on Apple Podcast, Google Podcast, Spotify, and Amazon Music.

Week 1: Hope, First Sunday of Advent, Isaiah 9:6-7, Dec 3, 2023

Sermon Notes

Just as the world seemed to be falling apart, God makes a promise.  In His time and in His way, He would send a new world power to make things right.  What happened to that promise? Does it still inspire us with hope in our own broken world?

Week 2: Peace, Second Sunday of Advent, Micah 5:1-5a, Dec 10, 2023

It may seem absurd to talk of peace when the world seems ripped apart by war and rumors of war.  God boldly promises peace, however, precisely when it seems most elusive.  His words still can restore our peace when we need it most. 

Sermon Notes


Week 3: Cantata, Third Sunday of Advent, Luke 1:39-49, Dec 17, 2023

Week 4: Love, Fourth Sunday of Advent\Christmas Eve, Matthew 1:18-24, Dec 24, 2023.

Services at 10:00 AM in the Sanctuary, 4:00 PM Outside in the Sanctuary Parking Lot and 6:30 PM in the Sanctuary beginning with a Bell Concert and 7:00 PM Candlelight Service. Just as Joseph considers abandoning his beloved Mary, God works to reclaim all His children.  Through this perplexed but blessed couple, He sends His own Son in human flesh to declare that He is forever with us. 

Week 5: New Year’s Eve, Joy, Luke 2:8-14, Dec 31, 2023

Just shepherds.  Not exactly the upper echelons of cultural power and prestige. Yet, God chooses them to hear great news that brings great joy.  Their message continues to inspire our rejoicing!
