Billy Graham once wrote, "Christmas is not just a date on the calendar. It is not just an annual holiday. It is not just a day to glorify selfishness and materialism. Christmas is the celebration of the event that set Heaven to singing; an event that gave the stars of the night sky a new brilliance. Christmas tells us that at a specific time and at a specific place a specific Person was born--JESUS! Join us this first Sunday of Advent as our journey to the gate begins in Luke 1.
