"But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,
made us alive with (Jesus) Christ even when we were dead in
transgressions - it is by grace you have been saved."
(Ephesians 2:4-5)

Celebrating the Christmas Season at Bunker Hill

The Christmas season is such a magical time for us as Christians. It is a time to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Over the last few weeks we have been blessed in our fellowship during many Christmas celebrations and we would like to welcome you to our final celebration of the season on Christmas Day at 11:00am. We invite you to worship with us and praise God for his life changing gift of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Ladies Christmas Silent Auction Brunch – On Saturday, December 5th the ladies gathered for a time of delicious food, shopping to raise funds for our missionaries and were blessed by a presentation by Melissa Arnesen. She presented a monologue of Mary’s life and her experiences as the mother of Jesus. It was both beautiful tribute that provided a heartwarming reminder of the sacrifice she made and the miracle of Jesus’s birth.

Christmas Pageant – On Sunday, December 14th the Bunker Hill cast amazed us with their performance of “Breaking News: Baby Born in Bethlehem”. It was a fun story that asked the question, if Jesus was born today, would we overlook the birth of our Messiah. It reminded us to not let the hustle and bustle of the season distract us from celebrating the birth of our or Lord and Savior. We pray that you shine the light of Jesus Christ throughout your lives and this Christmas season.

We would like to thank the entire cast for the hard work and dedication they gave to sharing this Christmas message with us.  We extend a special thank you to the director Karen DeKok for the countless hours she spent preparing and working with the cast members on this production.

Support a Local Family – We as a church were fortunate enough this year to provide Christmas gifts to 7 families. We pray these gifts help bring a little of the Christmas spirit to these families and that they would feel the love of Jesus as they open them.

We would also like to thank everyone that donated food items to the 5 Thousand More Food Pantry. Your donations will help parents prepare a special Christmas meal for their family.

A New Year’s Prayer –As we begin the new year, we encourage you to pray this prayer today, and every day.  We pray that you will allow God to be your guide throughout your lives.
