Halos, fresh hay, shepherds carrying new lambs and young motherhood in blue homespun--all touching images of Christmas. But the Christmas story is so much more than sentimental. It's historical, joyful, and essential.
And you may be surprised by what it is. In this 4-week series we're discovering why worship is so important to God, why it's utterly essential to our relationship with Him, what we get from it when we do it, and when and where we should "worship Him in Spirit and in truth."
What the world needs is people living and loving to the fullest with unconditional affection lived out beyond the limits of personal feelings. So how in the world do we do that? And why in the world do we need to?
Time for a vision check-up. Pastor Mike is back from Uganda and sharing a "state of the church" address this weekend. We'll see more clearly the vision, mission, and future plans of Hope Community Church.
