Becoming a Family PDF Print E-mail

Mary was in 'a family way.' She knew what it meant to be a family, and this was NOT how it was supposed to go. She wasn't prepared for what was before her, but here she was, and she had a choice. She could fall apart, or she could handle it. She chose to handle it. She didn't know how, but she trusted that one step at a time, she'd do what must be done. 
 
 
She would do what must be done and she would trust that God would be in it. It's not easy, but it is very simple; this thing called faith. And faith makes us family. 
 
What does it mean to have JESUS as your family? We'll work on answering that that this Sunday. 
 
Join us for either our traditional service at 8:30am or the contemporary one at 11am. In addition, Saturday at 5:30pm is our Sunday School Christmas Program, which will be the sermon. Really get into the Christmas Spirit and attend both! You will not be sorry!
 
Blessings to all,
~Pastor Karla

How does AmazonSmile work?
