The word Christmas comes from a Middle English word that means Christ’s mass. Since a “mass” is a worship service, Christmas literally means Christ’s worship service. The Christmas season, in its most basic meaning, is a season of worship services. We take that meaning seriously.
We are in the middle of a yearlong emphasis on worship at Faith Center. 2013-2014 is a year to worship on purpose. We want to put purpose into our worship. Meaning: we worship Jesus with intention. Then, we want to worship Jesus for purpose. Meaning: our worship of Jesus energizes us to fulfill the mission of Jesus. Since Christmas is a season of worship, we at Faith Center will do it on purpose.
We will be worshiping every Sunday in December at 9:00 and 10:45a. Each week will include specials ways to worship, from silence to candle lighting to communion to a kids choir. Sunday, 12/08, we will host an evening of worship, including sacred carols, worship songs, and prayer. On Christmas Eve, our season of worship will culminate with a special candle light service. December, 2013 will be a season of worshiping Jesus at Faith Center.
This holiday season, make worshiping Jesus the foundation of every Christmas activity. As you do, you will find that he is indeed the reason for this wonderful season. You will also find that He is very much worth our worship.
