Christ is with us at Christmas and always


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Daily Times One of the most disturbing aspects of the holiday season is that it is for some the loneliest and most unhappy and depressing time of the year. It doesn’t have to be that way, because those who know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior are never alone at Christmas or any other time of the year. Jesus is with His children regardless of the time of year and the circumstances in which they find themselves and, as He promised, He will never leave nor forsake them. The joy of Christmas is the joy of Christianity, the joy of knowing Jesus as our Lord and Savior and knowing that He is always there for us, sending us the comforter in the form of the Holy Spirit as He has been doing for the past 2,000 years. For those who know this and take this truth to heart then Christmas and every other time of the year is a time for joy, the joy of knowing that Jesus is real and with us always.
