As we enter once more the spirit of Christmas, do we realize it does not exist for the gifts, the shopping, the gatherings or food? It exists because God sent His son in the form of a tiny baby to save our souls and open the door to Heaven.
As Max Lucado puts it, “The Shepherd knows his sheep. To him every face is a story. Every face is different. The Shepherd knows each one by name. He knows your name and will never forget it.”
But Lord you are my shield, my wonderful God who gives me courage…. Psalm 3:3
Plan to be with us Christmas Eve at 6:30 p.m. in the SunBird Ballroom. The service will feature Minister Jim Baugh and his family, our church choir and other special music, and Hank Miller will read The Christmas Story. You are guaranteed to receive the Christmas spirit and a smile from the Lord for your presence.
We are fortunate to have Pastor Marv Jacobs as one of the visiting ministers who delivers meaningful messages at our Sunday service. He has been in the ministry for 38 years and has served churches in Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and Mesa. He resides in Leisure World in Mesa and sadly lost his wife in 2009. He has two sons, a “wonderful daughter-in-law” and five grandchildren. We are blessed by Marv’s presence at our church.
