A Message from the Pastor




Greetings Beloved Church Family & Friends,

Where does the time go? It’s hard to believe that we are already preparing for Christmas! As I gathered for a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with my family, I was saddened to see that many employees at several stores were unable to do the same as they were required to be at work on Thanksgiving Day as “Black Friday” sales began a week before and even on Thanksgiving Day! Does our consumerism reflect the true spirit of Christmas?

What is more important, the gifts we exchange with one another or the gift of Jesus Christ? As we journey together this Advent season, we will celebrate “A Different Kind of Christmas” a Christmas focusing on the true meaning of Christmas, the gift we receive in Jesus. We will focus less on the “to-do lists” of the holidays and more on experiencing the miracle of Jesus. We will focus less on materialism and more on the alternative giving. We will focus less on overspending and over eating and more on the abundant joy we receive in the Wonderful Counselor.

Have the Christmas preparations become overwhelming? Well, this is the time to cut back, simply, and have a Christmas that focuses on the real reason of the season - Jesus! Consider “alternative gifts” for those on your gift-list this year. (The Mission, Outreach and Evangelism Committee has created an Alternative Giving brochure, so be sure to pick up a copy). Throughout Advent our worship and Bible Studies will focus on the following themes: expect a miracle, giving up on perfect, scandalous love, Jesus’ wish list, and traveling by a different road.

Join us as we celebrate the greatest gift of all - the child who is born for us, who is named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace! With wishes for a joy-filled Christmas celebrating the birth of Christ!

In God's Service,


Reverend Jeffrey L. Hooker
