We just have to wait for Christmas to get here. So what are we waiting for?
DECEMBER 22, 2013 "Expressing the Inexpressible"
Fourth Sunday in Advent
Romans 1:1-7, Matthew 1:18-25
How would you try to explain the coming of the Son of God into the world? Fortunately we have some help in the Scriptures.
Solely by the grace of God, we desire and declare ourselves to be an inclusive church, where all persons are welcome to come, to inquire and become part of the Faith Family in response to God's urging. We welcome all persons into membership regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, marital status, social or economic status, physical or mental challenge. We acknowledge that each of us is part of Christ's Body, the Church, not by the merit of our lives, but wholly by the grace and mercy of God revealed in Jesus Christ.
We believe that God has called into the church persons with a diversity of gifts from all life's journeys. We, therefore, desire and declare ourselves to be a church that recognizes the gifts of all members, and commit to encourage the development and use of these gifts in every aspect of the church's life and mission.
