Christmas Presence Sermon Series 

November 29-December 13

Christmas Presence: It is so easy to get caught in the hustle and bustle of Christmas. The gifts, the parties, the crazy schedules, the decorations, and so much more. How many times do we reflect on our Christmases and think, I wish Christmas could be more simple? This Christmas, we go back to the basics for celebrating Christmas.

November 29: Finding the presents – Luke 2.1-20
Getting gifts for everyone on your list can be challenging, not to mention frightening at times. We must know the needs and wishes, know our budget, know our obligations, and then get organized. Unfortunately, there is always the risk of things getting out of hand.
December 6: What’s inside the presents – Matt 2.1-12  
When it comes to receiving our gifts, there are usually a wide array of responses. From surprise, to gratitude, to disbelief, the way we respond to the presents we receive is important. When it comes to being present with Christ, how respond is also important. 
December 13: Using the Presents – Luke 2.8-17

We do not have to wait to use the presents for a special occasion. We need to be present with Christ now. We don’t need to wait until we receive a special invitation. Though rough around the edges, the shepherds were intent on being present with Christ.
