MILE SQUARE CHURCH
Christmas might be a time that’s wholly familiar and comfortable in our culture, but the real reason for Christmas is far more radical and startling than any of our traditions indicate.
The truth is that Christmas is celebrated because God Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, humbled himself to the point of being born as a human in our world. And he was born for you!
“And the angel said to them, 'Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.'”
It’s more blessed to give than to receive
This Christmas season we’re seeking to love our neighbors and bring the hope of Jesus into every household. One way you can help us do that is by donating a gift to the CASA Holiday Toy Drive. Hudson County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is a non-profit organization committed to advocating for the best interests of abused and neglected children.
What is Advent?
Advent is simply a word that means “coming," so during the season of Advent, Christians remember the first coming of Jesus on that first Christmas! At the same time Christians prepare for Jesus' second coming about which he prophecies in the Bible. Someday he will come again to restore all things.
This season we are preparing our hearts for the coming of Christ by inviting Jesus into our daily lives through daily devotions. Choose a devotion to do by yourself or with others and join us for live online church each week this Advent season!
