An Empty Manger Makes For An Empty Christmas


Now that Thanksgiving is over, Christmas is in full swing! The Christmas lists are flowing, shopping malls are crowded and our calendars are busier than ever.  The beautiful thing about attending church during December is that it reinforces the message of Christmas.  The message is the Gospel.  You see Jesus was, is and always will be the greatest gift God has ever given to us.


For a child will be born for us,
a son will be given to us,
and the government will be on His shoulders.
He will be named
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6


Our world was broken by the effects of sin.  God's chosen people of Israel had been scattered and persecuted.  Worship had to be relegated to a set of rules that kept believers always feeling, "never quite good enough".  Jesus left His throne and glory to walk among us as a human to teach, encourage and ultimately die for us.  He died for our sins to establish a relationship with God our Father.  Jesus humbled himself to arrive into this world in a lowly manger.  This world will constantly try to keep Jesus out of the manger. We cannot have Christmas without Christ.  Make a special effort to keep Christ as the center of your Christmas this year.  Nothing you will buy or receive will last for eternity, only the gift of our Savior in a manger is eternal. Keep Jesus in the manger because without Him, our Christmas would be empty. Donna and I wish you and your family a very merry Christmas.


In Him,


Pastor James

Recap of The Freedom Center Showing Our Church Love Through A Meal


On September 26 the life of our church changed forever when our bus was involved in an accident while taking our Senior Adults on a trip to Helen, GA.  Many of our members are still recovering and one has passed away from her injuries.  Our faith has been strengthened by a multitude of individuals, churches, schools, community groups etc., as we grieve, heal, and move forward.

Pastor Phil and his wife (Far Right) with some members of their church family at the Freedom Center,

Pastor Phil Sears and his church family at The Freedom Center have been friends of our church for a long time.  Our two churches are not even a mile apart, yet we work together to take the gospel to our community.  On Sunday, October 30th their church family shared a BBQ lunch and all the fixings with our church family.  From set up, serving, to clean up, they did it all.  It was very humbling for us all.  This was just a glimpse of what heaven is going to be like.  All believers working together to glorify God.  This is a was a beautiful thing.

The Butcher Block in Anderson Provided the Delicious BBQ while church members prepared the rest.
