Some of you may be debating whether to go to church on Christmas day or stay home and unwrap presents.  

Christmas, though, is not about us; it's about the savior of the world.  Christmas is not our birthday; it's Jesus' birthday. 

Why not come to church this Sunday and celebrate the birth of the one who made Christmas possible.  After all, if the choice is between staying home and unwrapping presents or going to church to celebrate our savior's birth, what do you think Jesus would have us do?

Sunday Scripture:  Matthew 2: 1-12

Sermon: "What Did Jesus Look Like?"

 Announcements and Coming Events!

Christmas Eve Candlelight Service - 7:30 pm.  Invite a friend and come sing some of your favorite Christmas carols.  There will be a dialogue at the manger scene, and the service will conclude with "O Holy Night" and the lighting of candles as we sing "Silent Night."  The loose offering will go towards supporting our weekend food bags for the children at the Whittemore school.

Weston Council on Aging Food Pantry:  We will be collecting food for the Pantry through the month of December. Non-perishable food may be left in the container in the Narthex of the church.
