Dr. Eric Hankins

Lead Pastor

The Christmas season is a powerful and unique time of year to remember that Jesus came to make a way for us to be near God. In his life, death, and resurrection, Jesus built a bridge between us and God allowing us to have continual , unhindered communion with our Creator. But God can’t force us into nearness with Him. Even as believers filled with the Holy Spirit, we can choose to live as if God is still far off. So this Christmas season, may se choose to open our hearts to the living God that we might experience fullness of joy in His loving presence.  Christmas, even a Covid Christmas has Christ in the midst of it. We are confident you’ll experience this during our worship gatherings and at our Christmas Eve services. Merry Christmas!
