Best. Christmas. Ever. Week 1

ABOUT THE SERIES

Okay, be honest: Have you ever taken a photo of a time when you were not having fun, but then posted it online and acted as if you were having the best time ever? 

We have too. But that's not how life has to be. Every single moment doesn't have to be the best ever. This Christmas, reject the pressure of projecting like it's the best ever and embrace your reality. Our prayer is that you would see how much God really loves you and accepts you for who you are.

THIS WEEK'S MESSAGE

Tonight's Sermon in a Sentence: God’s plans are usually bigger and always better, but they will stretch you.

Scripture: Luke 1:26-38, 1 Samuel 16:7, Ephesians 3:20-21

Key Question: What is something you hope/dream for?
