The Christmas story is often associated with key words like joy, love, and peace. Understandably so, because these words and themes certainly run throughout the story of God moving to the manger, and then to the cross. But there is another key word that is the invisible glue that holds the Christmas story together: faith.

The Bible says that “without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6, ESV)

Without faith, we don’t consider God, look for God, or experience God. And we certainly won’t follow Him. Without faith, the Christmas story doesn’t happen. Join us this Sunday at 10:30 AM as we go deeper into our series, “God’s Heart Matters” by talking about the power of faith. We’ll look to develop a more clear understanding of what faith is, and how it affects all that we do in our lives. Come experience a fresh faith with us!

Grace Received,
