Matthew: Jesus is Born

We are a little behind in getting our messages posted.  This is the message from our worship gathering on December 16th, 2017 taught from the Gospel of Matthew 1:18-2:23.

God knows the story of Jesus.  God speaks in the story of Jesus.  Jesus is the King of the story, and he’s inviting us into the story.

Matthew: Genealogy of Jesus

As a pastor, sometimes the Christmas story can feel like something I have to get through, so we can get back to the “good stuff” of the Bible; God’s grace and mercy.   But as I looked at this genealogy at the start of Matthew’s Gospel, I was reminded that the “good stuff” is right in front of us.  This one passage (a list of seemingly random names), is just dripping with God’s grace and mercy.

Included in this recording is our time of worship, lead for the first time by the Refuge.Youth band, and stick around for the end for a few Christmas carols as we roll into the Christmas season.
