He is Enough

___________
Hey everyone!
We are back in a more regular rhythm as 2019 is well underway. For this calendar year, I just want to enjoy the Lord more.
There have been years I have set lots of audacious goals, and that aggressive approach served me well in some areas. Goal-setting can be helpful in certain seasons of our lives. In other times, instead of a focus on resolutions, we need to cherish the
blessings before us, and spend more time in connection with the Father.
Whatever season of life you find yourself in, I hope the CIL family can be a support to you. Each time we gather for a worship service, Bible study, or other church activity, we want to add value to you!
This Sunday I’ll be preaching a sermon called “Through Waters and Fire” from Isaiah 43:1-7. I look forward to sharing God’s word, singing His praises, and going to the table of the Lord with you.
So thankful to love Jesus with you,

Aaron

Preparing for Christmas Eve

_____________
Christmas Eve is eleven days away! Don’t panic! Instead of stress and hurry, make a decision right now to enjoy the next few days. Slow down a little bit. Have some meaningful conversations. Soak it all in.
Also, make plans to attend one of our Christmas Eve services. We will have services at 2:00 and 3:30pm. Nursery will be provided through age two. The Christmas Eve service is part of our spiritual formation as His people. The Advent season has been building us towards this celebration. Please invite anyone not part of another congregation to this inspiring and faith-building experience.
Sunday (December 23) is important, too. Our Covenant Partners will have the chance to ratify Rhonda Gregory, Ched Heiss, Tommy Hollinden, and Laura Rivera to the Leadership Board for 2019-20.
I’ll be preaching week three of Advent, as we look to the theme Joy. I look forward to seeing you this Sunday!

Aaron

 

 

The Longest Night

_________
What’s a Longest Night Service?
As we move through Advent and the Christmas season, many of us carry pain of loss, or grief, or feelings of stress or burden.  It often feels like the reality of our experience has to be hidden or unacknowledged during the festivities of the season.  With The Longest Night Service, we’re offering both a space to acknowledge and lament the loss or pain and to receive the comfort of Immanuel, God With Us.
Our doors are open to find a place of remembering and consolation on Friday, Dec. 21st from 6:30 – 7:30.  We’d love for you to join us, and to invite those you know who might be blessed by this service.
Grace and peace,

Pastor Deborah Jackson

In Him was life, and that life was the light of men.  That light shines in the darkness, and yet the darkness did not overcome it.”  John 1:4
