Chances are you’re pretty familiar with the Christmas story. You’ve got Joseph, Mary, the angels, shepherds, wise men, and of course baby Jesus. And while these people might be the main focus of the Christmas story, they were not the only ones whose lives were affected. In this series, we will be looking at the Christmas story through the lens of those people surrounding the Christmas story and see from their different perspectives how this event brought hope to them.
What if you were known for the biggest mistake you ever made? Nobody remembers you for your career, your accomplishments, or any kind of difference you've ever made. All anybody remembers about you is the one area where you failed. As we continue our series, we find the Innkeeper in the Christmas Story in this exact spot. He had been taught his entire life to expect a Messiah to come to Bethlehem, but once the Messiah showed up, he was too busy, too booked, and there wasn't any room left. In today's message, Pastor Stephen contrasts the response of the Innkeeper with the response of the Shepherds and shows how we all often approach God the same way the Innkeeper did.Watch Message
Doing the right thing isn't always easy. But it's even harder to keep doing the right thing when it seems like it's not working. When we reach this point, we're often tempted to quit or at least compromise to get us to where we want to be. In the first week of this Christmas series, we look at the story of a couple, not wondering how they got pregnant, but a couple wondering if they ever will. Through their difficulty we see their faith being tested to grow and Pastor Sean shares 4 things that we can learn from their story.Watch Message
