Pastor Sam preaches on the Festival of Epiphany and helps us understand that we can see ourselves in the Magi visiting the child Jesus. If it wasn't for the mission of this child, the Magi would not belong in the scene, and neither would we. But thanks be to God, because of Christ, we do!
Pastor Sam takes us to the promise of a Savior made to young Mary. We hear not just of her miraculous pregnancy, but also that of her older cousin, Elizabeth, who will give birth to John the Baptist. God is in the business of making the impossible possible, perhaps the biggest miracle - making sinners into saints!
This week Pastor Matt goes back to the account of John the Baptizer, this time from John chapter 1. We see both a tenacious boldness and an authentic humility in John the Baptist which foreshadows the ministry of Christ who is born humbly in this world to boldly take on our sins on the cross. Listen and learn how John the Baptist prepares us to celebrate Christmas very soon!
On the second Sunday of Advent, Pastor Matt used some Renaissance Artwork to help tell the story of John the Baptist's ministry by the Jordan River. John the Baptist helps point us to Jesus and reminds us of WHY we celebrate the birth of Jesus. John points us away from him, away from ourselves, and to Christ our Savior and King.
