Weekly Memory Verse: "...For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." - Isaiah 9:6
Sermon Scripture Reading: Isaiah 9:6-7
-THIS SUNDAY'S SERMON- The Old Testament covenants and prophets have been pointing us to Jesus over the past few Sundays. This Sunday, we will venture into the New Testament as we focus on Jesus. Jesus is the center of the Word, the Word made flesh. He is the center of the gospel - God reconciling the world to Himself through Jesus Christ. Over the next few months, we will focus on Jesus - His birth, His life, His baptism, His temptation, His sinless life, His death and His resurrection.
For preparation for this Sunday, read: Matthew 1:18-25 Luke 1:25-38 Luke 2:1-7
Also read Philippians 2:5-11 & Hebrews 2:14-18.
Looking forward to worshipping and growing in Christ with you this Sunday.
Grace & Peace Eric
