Sermons on Christmas
Philippians 4:10-20 The Christmas season usually brings high expectations: joyous family gatherings, scrumptious meals, and perfect gifts; and yet reality often falls short. Pastor Rod Bunton visits a passage from one of Paul’s prison epistles to remind us of the joy of true contentment.

John 3:16 One of the most popular verses on the planet to both believers and unbelievers, John 3:16 is referenced when the discussion is about salvation. In this Christmas Eve message, Pastor Rod Bunton breaks it down and shows us that it also encapsulates the entire Christmas story in one verse.
Luke 2:8-14 We see it often this time of year in Christmas cards, song lyrics, and our scripture readings: “Peace on Earth, good will toward men,” but what does that mean? Pastor Rod Bunton explores the true meaning of peace — that if we seek peace between each other here on the world in which we live, it starts with peace between God and man.

Luke 20:42-44 ~ After rebuffing the scribes, Pharisees, Sadducees, and Herodians, Jesus asks his own question to those who were trying to challenge him.
