What Child is this? Our perfect Savior and Substitute! The joys of the Christmas season go on and on as we visit Jesus in His boyhood.

Pastor's sermon, "Already About His Father's Business," is based on Luke 2:41-52.

Christ is coming—and His coming is a gift of love! For us, love is rarely a gift. We love those who love us in return. But with God, His love is always an undeserved gift, especially as He sends His own Son to sacrifice Himself to make sinners holy. Today, we join Mary in marveling at the great things done by the Mighty One in love and mercy! Pastor's sermon, "Appreciate the Wonders of God's Love" is based on Micah 5:2-5.

This Advent season we are focusing on Symbols of Salvation. Tonight we are reminded of Christ Jesus our mighty warrior who comes in lowliness and humility as we look at the history of Gideon in the book of Judges. We ponder the Lord's words to Gideon when He says, "You Shall Defeat Them As One Man".

The readings this Sunday capture our joy at the coming of the Savior with the good news they have for us. Today we especially focus on the joy of repentance. While we don't usually think of repentance over our sins as being particularly joyful, the change of mind and heart that true repentance brings includes the joy we have at our Savior's coming. Pastor's sermon, "The Joy of Repentance," is based on Luke 3:7-18.
