Journey Groups Survey
This fall we were able to offer Journey Groups for children, middle school and high school, women, men, young adults, married couples, parents of children, and parents of teens, for those just exploring the faith and those desiring to dive deeper into the things of God. We’ve offered Bible studies, book studies, video studies, studies within homes, the church building, Zoom, and even at an assisted living complex. Our Journey Groups are a primary means that we as a local church fulfill Christ’s mission to become disciples of Christ who are making disciples of Christ. Because of this, it is our desire to become better and better at what we do. Please take a moment, and if you haven't already done so, complete our Journey Group Participant’s Survey. You can complete the attached survey and return it to the church office or complete it online right here: https://www.psyc433.site/index.php/365747/lang-en.

And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness

Adore: Last Minute Gift Ideas for Jesus
Matthew 2:1-11
December 25, 2022

Galatians 4:4-5
But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.

O Little Town of Bethlehem
How silently, how silently the wondrous gift is giv'n!
So God imparts to human hearts the blessings of His heav'n.
No ear may hear His coming, but in this world of sin,
where meek souls will receive Him still the dear Christ enters in.

Matthew 2:1-2
After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”

Matthew 2:9-11
After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

The Gift of Your Time

The Gift of Your Best

The Gift of Lordship

What will you give Jesus for his birthday?
How Many Kings
Expand
Verse 1
Follow the star to a place unexpected
Would you believe after all we've projected
A child in a manger
Lowly and small the weakest of all
Unlikeliest hero wrapped in His mother's shawl
Just a child
Is this who we've waited for 'cause

Chorus 1
How many kings stepped down from their thrones
How many lords have abandoned their homes
How many greats have become the least for me
And how many gods have poured out their hearts
To romance a world that is torn all apart
How many fathers gave up their sons for me

Verse 2
Bringing out gifts for the newborn Savior
All that we have whether costly or meek
Because we believe
Gold for His honor and frankincense for His pleasure
And myrrh for the cross He'll suffer
Do you believe
Is this who we've waited for

Bridge
Only one did that for me ooh
All for me ah ah ah
All for me all for you (4X)

Chorus 2
How many kings stepped down from their thrones
How many lords have abandoned their homes
How many greats have become the least
How many gods have poured out their hearts
To romance a world that is torn all apart
How many fathers gave up their sons for me

Ending
Only one did that for me oh
All for me all for you
