We Need the King
How’s your December going so far? With school winding down and the holidays coming up, have you taken the time to think deeper about what Christmas truly means—not just at the end of the year, but even in the light of everyday life? We celebrate Jesus’ birth each December, but the gift of God’s Son is something we need to remember every day because . . . we need Him every day! So far, we’ve studied how we need His presence and how we need the King. Continue joining us each week this month, on campus or online, and we’ll grow deeper in our faith together as we learn more about God’s many gifts to us, which are promises to fulfill the needs we have.
And continue reading your Deeper December devotional every day! I hope these daily lessons have been helpful to you. We still have copies available at our campuses—if you don’t have your copy yet, pick one up for you and a friend (or two) and jump right in.
This past Sunday, we had two fantastic performances of Handel’s Messiah during our services at West U Baptist. (You can watch the replay here.) It was our 59th annual presentation. Messiah has become a Christmas tradition we eagerly anticipate whenever December draws near.
Now, the last few years at our Crosspoint Church – Bellaire campus, we’ve held a more lighthearted and fun Christmas production: the 80s Christmas Concert. Many of you were looking forward to this week’s shows, but unfortunately we have had to postpone this year’s 80s Concert to sometime in 2023. It’s always a fun event, so stay tuned to next year.
