Is it possible to always have joy, even great joy, no matter life’s circumstances? Although not always easy we believe it’s possible. It’s possible because of Christmas – the birth of Christ!

We’re going to take a closer look at the birth stories of Jesus and the names given to Christ…Emmanuel, Light of the World, King, Savior, and Messiah. These names express the hope and great joy Jesus brings to all people who believe in him. By looking at the names of Jesus we expect to gain a deeper understanding of Christmas and the great joy realized through the birth of Jesus.
