  • A Pastor’s Notes

        Jesus said to his disciples, ‘Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat, or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds! And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life?’ Luke 12: 22-25

  • Remarkable Bible Fact
  • A Christmas Carol

    By Edgar Guest

    God bless you all this Christmas Day
    And drive the cares and griefs away.
    Oh, may the shining Bethlehem star
    Which led the wise men from afar
    Upon your heads, good sirs, still glow
    To light the path that ye should go.

    As God once blessed the stable grim
    And made it radiant for Him;
    As it was fit to shield His Son,
    May thy roof be a holy one;
    May all who come this house to share
    Rest sweetly in His gracious care.

  • Remarkable Bible Fact
  • Wonder

    By: Nancy Buckley

    There is faint music in the night,
    And pale wings fanned by silver flight;
    A frosty hill with tender glow
    Of countless stars that shine on snow.

    A shelter from the winter storm,
    A straw-lined manger, safe and warm,
    And Mary crooning lullabies,
    To hush her Baby’s sleepy sighs.

    Her eyes are rapt upon His Face,
    Unheeded here is time and space;
    Her heart filled with blinding joy,
    For God’s own Son a
    — her little Boy!
