Our God has Remembered Us: Christmas 2023

Dec 17, 2023  Elisha Freeman — The birth of Jesus is paramount to the Biblical narrative. If there is no virgin birth, then there is no life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. In our text this morning, the Apostle Paul via inspiration of the Holy Spirit, will remind us that the birth of Jesus happened at the right time and was for the right reason.

My Attitude…My Response

Dec 12, 2021 – Elisha Freeman  The Christmas holiday brings out various attitudes and response from people. For some, there is nothin but excitement, joy, and positivity. For others, there is nothing much to enjoy. For others, they are indifferent towards it all. If we combine Matthew 1-2 and Luke 1-2, there are a variety of attitudes and responses to Jesus. This morning we are going to examine just one of these and how the attitude of one specific group is an attitude that we cannot afford to have when it comes to Jesus and His message.

What kind of King?

This morning we will seek to answer this question and how we can follow in His footsteps.

Dec 02, 2018 –Elisha Freeman.

As the calendar turns and the Christmas season is ushered in and everything with it, we start a brand new series entitled ‘Pursuing the King.’ The holiday season is a paradox: joy and sorrow, peace and stress, and light and dark. These all exist and we can lose sight of Jesus and be taken off the path that leads to Him. What do we do when we encounter darkness and the light seems to go out? This morning we will seek to answer this question as we learn to Pursue the King in the Dark.
