Illuminate, Christmas 2023
We were born with a desire to love, know and see God. As Pastor Mark concludes our “Illuminate” Christmas series with Part 5 this morning, we return to John 1 to behold the wonderful news that God has come near in this message “How to See God.” Today we celebrate the miracle birth of the God-Man, Jesus, who came so we could experience God in his fulness.

Today begins our Christmas series Illuminate in which we will delve into the first chapter of John exploring the incarnate Word who came into our world’s darkness to bring us light and life. Pastor Dan guides us today helping us to find a deeper connection with Jesus as we invite his light into every area of our life in his message “The Spotless & Infinite Became Dirty & Finite,” from John 1:1-5.
