sundays: the word became flesh

Statistics have shown that humanity is worse off in nearly every measurable and felt category because of COVID.  It’s not just the illness, it’s the way we treat each other, it’s the way we behave, it’s the way we think, it’s what we’re buying into. We are less patient, less kind, less self-controlled, more angry, more depressed, more anxious and the list goes on.  We’re unhealthier physically and emotionally and relationally. We’re more polarized than we’ve ever been, we’re less interested in listening, we’re less empathetic, less compassionate, more selfish, more self-defending, more justifying... 


We are waning as a people and so in the four weeks of this series, we’re going to look at how the word or the template, the example, the model for our design as humans, became flesh and dwelt among us.  This is why we celebrate Christmas—Jesus came into the world as an infant not just to live so one day he’d die and rise from the dead but so that he would show us what it means to be truly human. 

 

As we are sliding away from our humanity, we’re going to look at four interactions Jesus had to remind us and as we surrender, to empower us to live humanely and rightly, for our own benefit, for our family's and for the world. 

 

Join us in person at 10am by REGISTERING HERE or join us Online.

the giving tree

Each year we have the opportunity to adopt local families in need during the Christmas season, circle around them and provide them with practical items, gifts, clothes, food to express the love of God in an incarnational way, just as He did with the birth of Jesus.  


This year's tree is 100% virtual.  


Find our TREE HERE, follow the instructions and we'll be in touch with further details.
