Christmas at Nations

/ NOVEMBER TO DECEMBER AT NATIONS CHURCH

THAT NIGHT THERE WERE SHEPHERDS STAYING IN THE FIELDS NEARBY, GUARDING THEIR FLOCKS OF SHEEP. SUDDENLY, AN ANGEL OF THE LORD APPEARED AMONG THEM, AND THE RADIANCE OF THE LORD’S GLORY SURROUNDED THEM. THEY WERE TERRIFIED, BUT THE ANGELS REASSURED THEM. “DON’T BE AFRAID!” HE SAID. “I BRING YOU GOOD NEWS AND GREAT JOY TO ALL PEOPLE.”

LUKE 2:8-10 NLT

In the final months of every year, as the retailers ramp up Christmas decorations and gift ideas, as we plan our holidays and end-of-year parties… the church has a unique opportunity to be a voice that reminds everyone about the true meaning of Christmas.

We live in uncertain times with the world very much in chaos and in search of meaning, purpose and hope. This is where the church must raise its voice to declare as the angels did in Luke 2, that Christmas is about the good news of Jesus Christ that brings great joy to all people.

This season, our declaration must be put into action. We are giving you an opportunity to declare this good news by giving generously to the many programs that will bring hope, by helping to serve others and by bringing someone to church to hear the true meaning of Christmas.

At Nations Church, Christmas isn’t about receiving, but about reaching. Come with us as we bring good news and great joy to everyone!

PRAY ON YOUR WAY

Everyday we spend time travelling… whether it be by bus, train, car or prehaps on foot or by bike! To connect us to the heart of God and His mission for us, we encourage you to ‘Pray on your way’! Take a moment while your travelling each day to pray for someone in your world to come to know Jesus. We pray this would be a significant time for you in your faith journey as we believe together that hundreds more people will come to know the real love and joy of having relationship with Jesus.

Hang the ‘Pray on your way’ tag from your toolkit in your car to remind you or download a wallpaper from the link below.

Grab a toolkit from the connection point this Sunday!
