Today’s Sermon Outline and Bulletin


Front Cover – Isaiah 9:6 - (NIV)

6 For to us a child is born,
    to us a son is given,
    and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
    Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.



Inside Cover - Colossians 3:16 (NLT)


16 Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts.


The First Noel – Josh Groban


Call to Worship – Psalm 29


Psalm 29 – NIV - A psalm of David. 1 Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.

Psalm 29 – NLT - A psalm of David. 1 Honor the Lord, you heavenly beings[a]; honor the Lord for his glory and strength.


God’s Gift of Christmas – Peace - Luke 2


Luke 2:1-11 (NIV) - The Birth of Jesus

2 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2 (This was the first census that took place while[a] Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3 And everyone went to their own town to register.


4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.


8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 


11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.


Sermon: Jesus the Messiah, God himself who took on humanity forever at his birth on Christmas, came into the world to rescue us and give us peace. And through faith in Him, in who he is and what he did for us, you can know the true and lasting peace that touches every aspect of our lives.
