Advent and Christmas Eve

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!” Sure, the lights and the tree, and a bit colder of weather—but I’m really talking about the busy stores, the crazy schedules, the well worn credit card, and the season of celebrations that rarely hold up to their expectations.

Unfortunately, this is a season where we experience way too many shattered dreams and brokenness, but the reality of Christmas is a Savior who came for the broken and shattered.

“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God with us’).”   -Matthew 1:23

Even in Chaos and our Distress, we have a reason to celebrate—Jesus has come to be our Immanuel. Bring your stress, your broken relationships, your failed beginnings, and find the hope and healing that comes to us through our Immanuel, GOD IS WITH US!
