The Celebration of Christmas: The Gifts

Message Summary: The Christmas season has been declared by many as “the most wonderful time of the year.” Not that everyone equally loves the Christmas season, but it, by far, is the favorite season for many.  Why?  For all of the reasons we have looked at throughout the Sundays of December: the lights, the joy, the gifts, the surprises, and the love.  And for many other reasons beyond just these five. This Sunday, Mike Richardson, our Lead Pastor, will share a message about “The Gifts.”  Why do we give and receive gifts on Christmas morning?  Where did the tradition begin and is the idea even biblical? How important is the whole “gift-giving-and-receiving” part of the Christmas celebration? May we all discover new ways to make this Christmas season one of the best holiday celebrations of our lives!  Merry Christmas, everyone!
