Hey everyone! Merry Christmas!
We know that many are traveling and spending time with family and friends this Christmas. Because Christmas lands on a Sunday and we meet weekly in a public building that we rent, we will not be having a gathering on Christmas this year. But! We do have a few things you can do with your family to immerse yourself in the story of Christmas this year. Take some time amongst the hustle and bustle of the season and reflect on Jesus breaking into the course of human history.
Here is what you can do:
1. WATCH THIS AMAZING FIVE MINUTE VIDEO ON THE COMING OF JESUS
2. IF YOU HAVE KIDS, READ THE STORY TOGETHER
Below is the Christmas story from The Jesus Storybook Bible that you can read as a family!
3. LISTEN TO OUR LIFE WITH GOD TEACHING
This Advent our theme at City View was Life With God. In this teaching Dru shares about four common postures of the human heart when it comes to God: 1. Life from God (receiving from God), 2. Life Over God (deism), 3. Life Under God (living in fear and staying within the moral lines), 4. Life For God (doing stuff for God to get his approval). Yet, Christmas is all about the true story that we, as humans, are designed for life with God. Christmas reminds us that God stops at nothing to be in relationship with us!
If you are apart of the City View family we also encourage you to help us reach our year end financial goal. To see where we are at and to give online go to
Have an amazing Christmas!
