The Fullness of Time

Be Ready

We are all ready to turn the page on 2020, hoping and praying that 2021 will be a better year! But with so many things out of our control, is there anything we can do to ensure that 2021 is a better year? Join us online for the last sermon in The Fullness of Time series where Pastor Gary Webber will share three examples that twelve-year-old Jesus set for us that are sure to make this a year that makes…

Be Aware

“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6) Often when we hear the story of Mary and Joseph losing Jesus in the Temple we wonder about their parenting. However, hidden in this passage is evidence that not only was Mary a good mom, but she was the right choice to raise the Son of God. As parents, grandparents, and mentors we need to be aware that our actions and examples now sets the tone…

Be Amazed

“But in the fullness of time, God sent forth His son … ” Paul’s description of Jesus’ birth would seem to put to rest any speculation that God’s timing was off when He sent Jesus to be the Savior of the world. But two-thousand years later, some people feel as if God has been late or completely absent when they’ve needed Him. How does Jesus’ birth over two millennia ago have any impact on us today? Join us as we…

Be Patient

Simeon and Anna were old – really old! From all outward appearances, they were completely out of time. They had waited and anticipated God’s provision, but as the end was drawing near, there appeared to be no way God could keep His promise. That did not, however, keep Simeon and Anna from hoping and faithfully waiting for God. Join us for week three of The Fullness of Time as we explore how God’s timing helps us understand that all of our longings are ultimately fulfilled in Him.  Passage: Luke 2:25-40 Three observations from a lifetime…

Be Still

While Zechariah and Elizabeth appeared to be a couple running out of time, Mary and Joseph appeared to have time on their side. Only recently engaged, this couple had their entire lives in front of them. There would be a wedding and eventually a family. But God had other plans. Long before the wedding night, Mary was told that she was going to be a mother, and that her child would be the Son of God. Join us for part…

Be Silent

Luke does not begin the Christmas story with the birth of Jesus. He doesn’t even begin with an introduction to Mary and Joseph. Instead, Luke begins by telling the story of Zechariah and Elizabeth, an older couple who appeared to be out of time. When God tells Zechariah that he is finally going to be a father, Zechariah questions God’s timing and finds himself speechless for the next nine months. Join us for part one of The Fullness of Time as we consider how God’s timing increases our faith and draws our attention to…
