Hidden Christmas


Series Summary: Christmas has become a major secular holiday despite the fact that many people celebrate it without any real spiritual meaning. Christians get upset at the commercialization of Christmas yet struggle to fully live in the light of its true meaning. Whether you consider yourself Christian or not; let’s unwrap the real hidden Christmas.

  New Years Eve - Christmas Everyday

Core Truth: Well I wish it could be Christmas everyday” is the dream of many people. We wish we could have a longer celebration but we know that reality is about to kick in and we have to return to work. The hidden meaning of Christmas is that God’s salvation, fellowship with Christ and His joy is Christmas every day!

Scripture: 1 John 1:1-7

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

Date: December 31, 2017

  Christmas Eve - Jesus Is King

Core Truth: Most people are neutral when it comes to their understanding of Jesus. Like a Christmas buffet, we pick and choose the bits that we like and leave the rest. The hidden meaning of Christmas is that if the Son of God was really born in a manger then that truth demands a response.

Scripture: Matthew 2:1-12

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

  Hidden Christmas - God Becomes Man

Core Truth: The existence of Jesus of Nazareth is not historically denied. Many today acknowledge him as a great teacher, leader, and healer who did a lot of good. The hidden meaning of Christmas is that Jesus is God who became man to reveal God’s heart and plan for humanity.

Scripture:  Matthew 1:18-25

Speaker: Nathan Wachal  ~ Associate Pastor - Community Initiatives and Worship Arts

  Hidden Christmas - The Real Jesus

Core Truth: The picture of baby Jesus, meek and mild, leaves us with an image of one who has come not to ruffle any feathers. The hidden meaning of Christmas takes place in less than favorable circumstances and the real Jesus that emerges is not what one expects but is exactly what we need.

Scripture: Luke 2:33-35, Matthew 10:34-39

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

Date: December 10, 2017

  Hidden Christmas - Into The Light

Core Truth: It is ironic that the Christmas celebration of lights hides the true light of the world, Jesus Christ. He came into the darkness of our world to reveal our true condition and to illuminate the way to life. 

Scripture: Isaiah 9:2,5-7

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

Date: December 3, 2017
