What might be a little painful during the year seems to be incredibly painful during Christmastime.

Acts 14:22b
Through many tribulations we must enter into the kingdom of God.

Proverbs 18:19
A brother offended is harder to win than a strong city, and contentions are like the bars of a castle.
God does not always show up when something bad happens.
• “The safest place to be is in the center of God’s will.”
• Isn’t that beautiful? The problem is, it is unbiblical.

• We are all called to a unique and personal walk with God.
• We have to trust Him that the path He calls us to is the best path for our lives.
• When tribulations and offenses do come, we should not turn our backs on God but turn our hearts toward Him.
• Try not to rehearse the offense, but release it through forgiveness.
We cannot enjoy the grace of God without extending grace to those who hurt us.
How do we forgive something that seems unforgivable? It has to be the same way God forgave us.

CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE – December 24, 10 to 11:15 AM
Our Christmas Eve service will be at the normal Sunday morning time of 10 AM. Instead of having multiple services on Christmas Eve, we’re combining all of our resources into one life-changing service with live Christmas music before the service in the lobby. Kids Church performs a special song, Jonathan will speak a fresh and exciting message and after the service, we will have a hot chocolate bar, cookie decorating and more live music. It’s all FREE.

Connect Groups – start in January 2018
You can’t choose your family, but at Love Joy, you can choose your Connect Group ;) Starting in January, we offer 14 groups and courses. Pick up a flyer today and decide anytime during December which group to attend. If you have questions, Denis & Nancy Kitchen will be in the lobby to help. You can meet the group leaders on December 17 when we offer FREE Paula’s donuts in the café.

Audio Podcast

An Audio Podcast of each talk will be available here within 24 hours after the live event.
