Pastor's Corner

Grace and Peace to Everyone Today!

Can you believe Christmas is right around the corner!!!! I understand that most of this year has been very different for all of us……due to Covid. Unfortunately, for many of us that will be the case for Christmas also. For many of us this is a time to gather with family and friends to celebrate. That may not happen for many, some may spend it with a lot fewer family members or no family members at all. With that being said, lets try to look for a positive. Does that mean we have a lot less of the so called “hustle and bustle” this year……yes, and that may not be a bad thing. With that will come less stress for sure! Does that give us more time to focus on the true meaning of Christmas…..yes!!!! I truly do understand that celebrating the Holidays without loved ones is difficult. Maybe that will be all the more reason to find the true meaning of the Season!

Remember…..The Birth of Jesus and Meaning of Christmas. Here are just two of the many Bible Verses about the Meaning of Christmas…..I challenge you to grab your Bible and find more.


“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and he government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” – Isaiah 9:6

Take time this holiday season to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas by glorifying the One who gave it all. Christ came with a plan for our redemption!

"What is Christmas?

It is tenderness for the past,

Courge for the present,

Hope for the future."

Agnes M. Pahro
