The Curse: Paradise Lost – Paradise Regained

This is the second Sunday of Advent and Pastor Ray will bring this week’s message in the Auditorium.     Our sermon series is called “What Child Is This?” and we are looking at the significance of Jesus’ birth.
Last week we saw that Jesus came to redeem and restore a creation which was broken and groaning.   His coming assures us that things are and will be made new! This week Ray will talk about how Jesus came to redeem us from The Curse.   We will look at how life was meant to be, what it became, and how the curse has been reversed by the coming and the work of Jesus.
Pastor Bill brings the message in the Chapel at 11:00. Bill’s sermon is called “The Vulnerable God” and we’ll see how God became vulnerable for us in order to redeem and restore the relationship that was broken between God and man. We’ll then look at how we are to become vulnerable towards God and vulnerable towards each other.
