Community at Christmas 1: Hope for Discouragement

Community at Christmas 1: Hope for Discouragement

December 3 – 24

Christmas – it’s a time when people get together with friends and family possibly more than any other time of the year. And yet it’s a time when many people are more lonely than any other time of the year.

It’s the time when people experience discouragement, conflict, sorrow and uncertainty more than ever. This is the reality of our world, our society, our lives.

So, what do people need most at Christmastime? More gifts? More parties? More carols? More eggnog? We believe what we really need at Christmas is community – a place where we can experience hope for discouragement, peace for conflict, joy for sorrow, and faith for uncertainty. If you could use some of those, we invite you to Gateway Church on Sunday mornings in December, including Christmas Eve, for an experience called “Community At Christmas”. We hope you can join us! You might even get a carol or two.
