Sunday Replay 12-9-2007

The ice storm kept some folks at home yesterday, but the ones who showed up warmed themselves with worship and the Word!

Weather Policy:  We will have services if there is snow and ice, but please use discretion and your best judgment.  Don’t attempt to drive if you feel unsafe.  The only situation I can think of at the moment when we would not meet is if there was no power at the building.There may be times when it’s advisable to delay services for an hour or so – listen to Shine 99, WSHW 99.7FM & WILO 1570AM for that information.

We’re so excited about next Sunday: It’s Christmas Program day!  The children will present “Live from Bethlehem” during the 10:00 AM worship service, and the adults will presents skits and special music at 6:00 PM.  A cake & coffee fellowship will follow the program on Sunday evening.  Make plans to be there and invite your friends and neighbors.  

We began a 2 part series yesterday, “What Child is This?” focusing on the story of Jesus in the first chapter of John’s gospel.  Part one is available on tape, and we will wrap up the series with part two on Sunday, December 23rd. Here’s the outline:What Child is This? – John 1:1-13

The Reality about Jesus

1. He is eternal – He has always existed.   “Before Abraham was born, I am,” John 8:58

2. He is the Creator of all things.  For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities–all things have been created through Him and for Him.  He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.  Colossians 1:16-17

3. He is Life and Light . “let there be light.”  Genesis 1

The Response to Jesus

1. Some ignore Him. “and the world did not know Him.”

2. Some reject Him.  “His own did not receive Him.”

3. We have to receive Him.  “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name…”

 “After further review…”  that’s the Sunday replay.  God bless you all, have a great week!
