For Unto Us
A Child is Born!

Isaiah 9:6-7

For a child has been born for us, a son given to us;
    authority rests upon his shoulders; and he is named
        Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
            Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace

We will be making Baked Alaskas, learning part of Handel’s Messiah, and watching and discussing the movie, “The Nativity” as we explore how Jesus is our Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. Some of the materials are copyrighted and therefore are not included on our webpage. Please ask in the church office if you would like to view them.

A Prophecy is a message from God that foretells God’s plans. This message has been spoken or written down by an individual. A prophecy tells of God’s plan or goal through a promise or judgement yet to be fulfilled

God plans for the future and keeps God’s promises. God has a plan for you! We can trust that God will always be with us because God promised God would. God sent Jesus to be your Messiah because God loves you!
