Christmas at LifeBridge

7e21acde-8518-4f86-ac96-3678baf50833.jpegThis Christmas at LifeBridge we will walk through the story of Jesus’ birth, beginning Sunday, December 7th. It begins in the Garden with God’s promise of a Savior and ends with an eager anticipation of Jesus’ promised return. In the middle, God shows His unmistakable faithfulness in sending the promised Rescuer. We see His love for the lowly and outcast as He proclaims the news of His Son to the shepherds. We marvel at His heart to see all nations come and worship His Son through the Magi’s journey.

Even if you know the Christmas story well, don’t rush past what God has for you in this season. For many, this may be the first time to consider all that God is saying through the birth of His Son. For others, it will be an opportunity to rediscover the way God intimately works in the details of life for His glory and the good of man. For all of us, may this season be one marked by hope, expectation, remembrance and worship. The King has come and is coming! There is much to celebrate.

New Series: PUZZLED // Nov 15

How do we make sense of things in our lives that don’t make sense? The Apostle Paul once said, “Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity” (1 Corinthians 13:12, NLT).

In this three-week series, we will walk through how to trust God to calm the storms in our hearts even before he calms the physical storm we’re facing.
