Worship Guide | December 24, 2023

A Word from Our Pastor

Good morning & Merry Christmas Eve!

What a blessed day and time this is for God’s people. I am glad you chose to worship with our church family today! Christmas is a wonderful time to talk about angels, so we continue this morning with our sermon series titled, “Angels All Around Us!”

TODAY…I want to talk about, “The Lord of Angels,” and our attention is going to be firmly on the Lord Jesus Christ. It’s true that even though our theme is angels, our topic and our focus is the Lord Jesus Christ (That’s how it should always be.)

TODAY…I invite you to go with me throughout the New Testament. We’re going to go from Matthew to Revelation, because I want us to see how angels interfaced with the life and ministry of Jesus.

Merry Christmas to you and your family,

Pastor Danny
