Come Home For Christmas
You Are Always Welcome Here
CHRIST-mas is Coming
The Church loves CHRIST-mas!
It's not the gifts (although those that wise men brought to Jesus were far more significant than an X-Box or the latest iPhone!)
It's not the Holly and the Mistletoe (which bring brightness and colour to the winter season).
It's not the lights, (even though they remind us that Jesus Christ is The Light of the World).
It's not the carols (although we love to tell the Christmas story in song).
It's not even the food (although we never forget that God is the source of all we have).
It's Good News
Emmanuel - God Is with Us - NOW!
... the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! (Luke 2:10-11 NLT)
It's Great News
Peace with God - because of what Christ started at Christmas and finished at Easter
“Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.” (Luke 2:14 NLT)
This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. ... “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.” (Romans 1:17 NLT)
New life for you and me - a fresh start
It is this Good News that saves you if you continue to believe the message I told you. (1 Corinthians 15:2 NLT)
Our CHRIST-mas Celebrations
Sunday 23 December at 5pm at Claremont - CHRIST-mas Celebration - A Candlelight, family-friendly service followed by Festive Food. All are welcome - please come!
Tuesday December 25 - We don't have a service on Christmas Day so that you can enjoy Christmas with family and friends - and why not invite someone that you wouldn't normally who might need some love on Christmas Day?
Sunday 30 December at 10:30 at Claremont - A Service of Thanksgiving for the past year - followed by a lunch together.
There's always lots going on at Claremont, so why not join us all year round.
