Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 NKJV

Sermon Outline

Lord's Supper


Luke 2:11; Matthew 11:28-30

I’m afraid because of the busyness of the season - we miss the

meaning of the season.

Jesus was given as a personal gift to you!

● Luke 2:11

Jesus was given to lift your burdens!

● Matthew 11:28-30

Jesus came as a gift of great wisdom beyond what we can imagine.

Jesus came as the gift of our Mighty Warrior.
