Christmas bells are ringing! As we embrace this joyful season, our life has been busy with Christmas-related events. This weekend, though, we are finally able to take a little bit of a breather and step back and focus on why we celebrate. Here’s a few photos from several special occasions this season.

Christmas time brings so many different activities. It can be so easy to get caught up in the events of Christmas, instead of realizing and remembering that we celebrate Christmas because “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” (1Timothy 1:15). Without Him, we have nothing to celebrate. As one song says, “What is Christmas without Christ?”

May you have the joy of remembering that our Redeemer lives.

Merry Christmas!

Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:10-11
