MERRY CHRISTMAS!
from Pastor Jeff
 
Dear Parents,
Did you hear the cute story of the little girl who was afraid of the dark?
One night Mom and Dad were about to fall asleep when little Stacey cried out, “Mommy! Daddy! I’m scared! Can you come in
here?”
 Dad, half asleep, said,“You’re okay, Stacey. Mom and Dad are right across the hall. Go to sleep.”
A few moments later, Stacey cried out again. “Mommy! Daddy! I’m still scared! Please come in here.”
This time, Mom answered. She said, “It’s okay, Stacey. You’re not alone. God is with you. Now go to sleep.”
A few moments later, Stacey said, “But I need someone with skin on!”
 
My friends, soon we will celebrate the wonder of Christmas. And perhaps the most wonderful fact of Christmas is this:
Many years ago, in a little town called Bethlehem, on a silent night, God “put skin on.” The little baby sleeping in the manger was in fact the Creator of the Universe, visiting the planet, coming to experience life as a human being.
That’s amazing stuff! No wonder the world responds with such a huge celebration each December.
I invite you to join us at Christ Church this Christmas as we celebrate that fact. We will have a wonderful children’s celebration, beautiful candlelit services, and magnificent holiday music. Bring the whole family … we even have a special service suitable for the youngest child in your family at 4:30 on Christmas Eve.
I wish you the best Christmas of your life!
Jeff
