“Advent is a multi-layered season of meanings. Over and over, we find ourselves centered in the extravagant documentation that spells our God’s penchant for wonder, mystery, and surprise. Nowhere is this better reflected than in the Christmas story. If we listen carefully, we might catch the sense of things both ancient and new, both intimate and shattering. We just might begin to hear the sounds of Him coming back again.” —adapted from An Advent Sourcebook, ed. Thomas J. O’Gorman
Plan now to make Sunday morning worship part of your Christmas Day celebration. Pastors Mike McCrary and Justin Kochs will wrap up our Christmas sermon series, To Us, with “Prince of Peace” at one combined 10:00am service. This will be a family service, so no regular children’s ministries will be available. Evening services and activities will not meet.
The church office will be closed from Friday, December 23 through Monday, December 26 in observance of Christmas. If you have an emergency situation, please call the church office at 417.866.5013. For all other needs please call or stop by during our regular office hours. Those hours are Monday-Thursday, 8am to 5pm and Friday, 8am to 3pm.
We wish you the love, joy, and peace that only the One born to be King of kings and Lord of lords can bring. Merry Christmas, Central family and friends!
