Sunday Morning Preview - December 30, 2018

In 1 Peter 4-5 the apostle is writing to young believers who are struggling as they face harsh persecution. Along with a call for humility, submission, and sober-mindedness Peter cautions them that their “adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour”.

Most of us might prefer to file this admonition under “superstitions from a bygone age” - the unfortunate reality we soon discover, however, is that the world, the flesh, and [yes] the devil, repeatedly and too often successfully conspire to frustrate our every advancement in faith.

Please join me this Sunday morning for insight on this topic from Ezra chapter 4 in a message entitled “Enemy Strategies”.

Sunday Morning Preview - December 23, 2018

This Sunday is the last one before the big event. The great celebration of the newborn King is at hand. The One who is our hope fulfilled, the One whose punishment buys our peace, the King whose joy is our strength; we mark the advent … His coming… soon.

During this season we try to put ourselves into the shoes of those on the other side, before  Christianity, before the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord. The idea is to keep what God did, this event of bursting into humanity to rescue us, to keep that from becoming something less, something routine, something boring, something to be … endured? May it never be.

Please join me this Sunday morning for “Glory to the New Born King”.

Sunday Morning Preview - December 8, 2018

Over the past decade or so this coming Sunday morning has become a favorite for many of us at DCC; I am speaking of course of our annual  Children’s Christmas Pageant and Pot-Luck Breakfast.

The day will begin with pre-service prayer at 9:30 followed by breakfast, coffee, eggnog, and fellowship until the service gets underway. 
(Please have contributions there by 10)

While we are sharing breakfast the children will be practicing for the concert, which we will enjoy along with a time of worship and Christmas carols, and the morning will conclude with a message from the Word of God which I have entitled, as you may have guessed, "Jesus, Light of the World".
