God is always with us

The Christmas season is one of the most celebrated times of the year. Immediately after Thanksgiving, the commercialism of Christmas is advertised. Jesus is the real meaning of Christmas and he is the reason for the season. This is a time when we celebrate Christ our Savior's birth.

God gave ultimate gift to mankind

Everyone loves gifts, especially during the Christmas season. Many people will go into debt buying gifts to give to their kids, families and friends. Often times in the hype of gift giving we forget the real purpose of this holiday. We forget that this is a day we have set aside to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, God's gift to the world.

Loving God means loving those we see each day

I often wonder how someone can say they love the Lord but they fail to love those around them. Christianity is all about love. If one professes to be a child of God, then the love of God should dwell within that person.

Give and it will come back to you

Society consistently teaches us to take all we can, build a personal kingdom and look out for ourselves. You may have heard of "gold diggers," women who take advantage of men to receive material gain, or "hustlers," people who will do whatever it takes - legal or illegal - to make sure they have what they want. But the Bible encourages God's people to have a different mindset. We are taught to be givers.

Children have important role in services

Every Sunday morning at our church, we have what we call "children's moments." It's not unique to our church, but it was something new for us when we started it a few years ago.
