Third Sunday of Advent- Love
Title: “I’ll Be Homesick For Christmas"   

Text: John 1:14 / John 14:1-3 

Pastor Perry Kallis

Have you ever been homesick while sitting in your own house? If you’ve ever longed for a time or place in your past, then the answer would be, “yes”, and it likely most often happens during the season surrounding Christmas. For many of us, this is the time of year that sparks memories of past joys with family and friends. But homesickness can actually be a healthy Biblical reminder of the foundational truth of Christmas in many ways. Jesus left His home in heaven to make His dwelling with us and bring us salvation and the eternal hope of eternity in God’s heavenly home. The sermon this week will review the benefit of this kind of godly homesickness and the motivation it can be to live for God’s mission of Good News.

Give Hope to A Family in the World
This Christmas!

I bet you have never given a goat, a watering can or a sewing machine to someone for Christmas. We don’t see these as valuable gifts. But for someone in Romania, Malawi or Burundi, they can be gifts that open doors and provide basic necessities of life. HOPE International invites you to make a contribution of any amount that provides men and women around the world with discipleship, biblically-based training and a safe place to assist people with start-up funds for a business. Your kids or grandkids can be involved, too! Go to to pick out a project or come by the church office and pick up a HOPE Gift Catalog. Make someone’s Christmas brighter this year!
