From the Pastor: A Season of Angels

by Phil Oehler

This is a season of angels, Wiseman, shepherds, a census and a baby born in  manger, but it is also a season of the Lion. A time to remember that the baby Jesus will become a man and willing sacrifice himself for all humanity. CS Lewis is one of my favorite writers, he was not fond of the Christmas holiday that he […]

2018 Advent Study December 2018

by pcw1rick

A remarkable gift can arrive in an unremarkable package. One did in Bethlehem more than 2000 years ago. No one expected God to come the way he did.
