I would like to take a minute to introduce you to Angela Atherton if you don't already know her. She and her husband John, have been a part of The Net since we began and Angela is an extremely talented artist and writer. Her new book "When I Get To Heaven" is beautifully written and illustrated by her and has just been published and will be distributed across the county in the major book stores. We are honored to have her with us this Sunday signing her books for you. If you have children in your immediate or extended family, this would be a great Christmas gift! See you Sunday!
The greatest irony in all of life is that the things that we want so desperately are exactly things that God would gladly give us. But instead, we spend most of our lives pursuing the things we think we want only to find out that the dream was empty. What a shame! God has given us everything that we could ever want. He has granted our deepest heart’s desire. He has offered us the richest most fulfilling life possible and we are indecisive.

We don’t know if we want to go all in with God. It’s both the blessing and curse of humanity that we have souls, intellect and a free will. If we are able by the grace of God to find our way to Him with all the distractions, we will find the real God but we will also find the real us. We will find our deepest desires and the King of all creation who will gladly fulfill them.

I hope you won’t pass up the opportunity to come together and worship this King Sunday.
There is an incredible story that leads up to the most astounding event in all of human history. God the creator comes to us in human form. The star lights the way. Jesus makes His first appearance in a most unexpected place. And all of this was done for you and for me. It's too amazing to fully comprehend but if we could grasp just a part, it would change us forever. God came here because he loves us. He loved us then and He loves us now. He came for all the ones who had gone before and all those who have lived from that time until now. And He came for us! He came for this moment as you read this email. He came for you!

At the moment when He first appeared on that star lit night, we already existed in the mind and heart of God. "For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them." Ephesians 2:10. The infinite God has taken such thought and care to design a plan for you and me. What is your story? What are the events that are leading you to that unexpected place. If we will take time to notice, God will light the way!

The music this week is exceptional! Our band and singers are phenomenal. Come join us and bring some friends with you! You won't be disappointed! 10:30 Sunday morning, 2620 Clinton Ave, The Stone Center on Campus 805. I'll see you there!
This week's message is "Act I" of the Christmas Story! It begins 700 years before that night in Bethlehem. Isn't it interesting that God has had a plan in the works since the beginning. The first chapter of John says that in the beginning there was the Word, all things were made by Him and that Word was made flesh and dwelled among us. Jesus was always there, He just made his appearance on earth as a baby in His mothers arms that first Christmas night.

I'm excited about this week! I think we'll all know God a little better after this Sunday! Don't miss this one! We have some great Christmas songs planned and what a way to start the season!
I love a good story! I also love movies (I guess it figures). My favorite Christmas movie is “It’s A Wonderful Life”. I have made it our family tradition to sit down and watch that movie every Christmas Eve. I guess I love it so much because the hook of the movie is so true.

Clarence says to George, "Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?” It’s so true that each one of us is incredibly valuable. I hope that you will look around your holiday table today and appreciate every one of those present. If you find yourself missing someone who is no longer at the table, I hope you’ll appreciate the blessing that they were to you and so many others. If you are by chance alone, please remember that you were intentionally created by God for a purpose and you are extraordinarily special. I thank God for you!

If you don’t have anywhere to be specifically this Sunday morning at 10:30, join us for worship and hear a great story that I can’t wait to share with you! We are at the Stone Center located at 2620 Clinton Ave. on Campus 805. See you there!
