Is it the food, cozy fireplaces, giving presents, getting presents, hot cocoa, time off work...? While all these bring special moments with friends and family, we often lose the true meaning of Christmas. This year we want to bring your attention to a different kind of presence. It's what Christmas is truly about, Immanuel meaning, God with us. Jesus wants to be with us. He wants us to know His presence.

The book of Isaiah prophecies Jesus as the Wonderful Counselor who gives us loving guidance. He is the Mighty God who gives us joy and strength. He's the Everlasting Father who gives us hope and protection. He is the Prince of Peace who gives peace beyond our understanding.

Knowing the presence of Jesus as all these and more, is when you will truly discover what it means to experience Christmas all year long!

You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of Your presence and the pleasures of living with You forever. -Psalm 16:11

We look forward to celebrating Christmas with you this year.

Merry Christmas!
