Does it look like Christmas is coming? It sure looks like it to me. There may not be snow, but all the other signs point to Christmas.
Candy can be a sign of Christmas, and Macon is having a candy sale on December 7 and 14, following service, to raise money for the Deputy U.M. Church in Liberia. We have done a good job supporting them this year, and let's keep it up.
The music is a sign that Christmas is coming, so please make sure you mark your calendars and join us if you can for our Christmas sing-a-long and Cookie Exchange on December 14 at 7:00. We need a time to just relax, enjoy the music, enjoy the lights, and really celebrate this most joyous of days.
The lights and decorations are a good hint that Christmas is coming. As are the presents, wrappings, and the bows. Not to mention an occasional Santa or reindeer.
Long before Christ was born there were some signs that foretold the coming of a great one; Son of God. The prophets received word from God and spoke of someone yet to come. They spoke of a day when God's kingdom would come on the earth. And there were other signs that told of a coming savior.
So for Christmas this year we will have a sermon series that talks about the signs that foretold a Messiah was to be born. What did the prophets say? What did the star mean? Who was John the Baptist? What is the message of the angels? These are questions to ponder as we prepare for Christmas.
So please join us to examine the Bible and what it tries to teach us about the signs for the coming of Jesus, and what they would mean for the world. Come let us all adore him.
In Jesus' name.

Sunday School: 9:15-10:00
Sunday Morning Worship: Sundays 10:30-11:30
Sunday Nights, 6:30-7:30: We have an evening gathering called "FWD," because we are going to take this church forward. We are a small, informal group that gathers for prayers, music, worship, and to read the word. Instead of a "sermon" we all join together to read the scripture, discuss what it means, and share our stories of what it is God is trying to say to us. Come and join us, and bring a friend.
