Words from a Christmas song I wrote several years back:
This time of year
Bright red and green, sweet manger scenes
Point to the One
Who took our place, amazing grace
Sing Heaven's praise
Rejoice and sing Heaven's praise
Glory to our God
Humbly, we bring our gift of love
As you run around this week making last minute purchases to fill stockings or putting presents under the tree, consider Him who lived the greatest gift of all. Pause for a moment and make it your aim to give Him your undivided attention. Take time to love Him with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, all your strength. Give God the gift of an all-inclusive you this Christmas and make it a truly Merry Christmas.
OVERFLOW and LIVE IT, Wednesday, 6:30-7:30
We'll worship altogether upstairs for OVERFLOW, then regroup downstairs to glory in our story, Operation: Immanuel. This will be our last class time together before moving to Virginia. Hoping to make it special, looking back at God's faithfulness over the past four years and praying for His continued blessing and favor at CrossBridge in the next year.
REGISTER FOR WINTERFEST
Our annual pilgrimage to Winterfest this year will be Friday, 2/16 through Sunday, 2/18. We've begun signups a little later than usual this year, so we're modifying the registration process just a bit. We're only asking for a $5/person deposit to hold your spot and pledge your participation. The balance of $95 will be due by Sunday, 2/9. Follow the link to secure your spot.
CHRISTMAS EVE CANDLELIGHT SERVICE, Sunday, 5:00
