The Unopened, Unused, and Abused Christmas Gift

Speaker: Pastor Derrel Strickland

Scriptures: Hebrews 10:11-39, Matthew 7:1-12, Mark 3:20-30, John 1:14-18

Summary: The greatest gift ever given was Jesus Christ. For those that have heard, it is like having a gift under the Christmas tree all ready for the taking. But too often the gift remains under the tree. Some take the gift and fail to use it or put it in a safe place never to be touched or used. Still others abuse the greatest gift thinking it is theirs with no obligation to share it.

Why I Believe In Christmas

Speaker: Pastor Derrel Strickland

ScripturesLuke 2:4-7, John 1:1-14, Genesis 1:1-2, Genesis 1:26-28, Genesis 3:14-15, Matthew 1:20, 23

Summary: Many people struggle with Christmas. Let me share with you why I believe in Christmas. The story is much bigger than the manger; Christ was, is, and will always be. He gave up his place in heaven to come to the earth as the greatest gift so he could give the greatest gift, eternal life and forgiveness of sins. I believe in Christmas.
