This Sunday is full of Christmas cheer. The children's Christmas play happens at Grow Hour; the Galilee Youth Wind Ensemble plays at both services.

”When Jesus came to Earth, He didn't come for a small set of people. He came to save the entire world. And guess what? That includes you. Jesus came to offer each individual person the opportunity to experience a personal relationship with Him. Even if we've made choices that show more indifference, resistance or opposition to God than love and admiration for Him, the invitation is still there. Put your faith and trust in Him. Let His love in.”
