Christmas comes and goes so quickly. But the way we believe changes the way we think about and remember Christmas. We once again face the start of a brand new year and you have to make a decision. Do you let the lessons and memories of this Christmas make you stronger and closer to Jesus or do you let the moments slip away? In this study, we continue in Luke 2, but we think about the importance of belief and how we make Christmas last.
Salvation is a very big word. Not just because it contains a large number of letters, but because it means so much more than many people understand.

Because of what He has done, we can be who we were created to be!
This is a series where we discover some ways to live a heroic life.

Heroes always bring hope, and in the life of Anna, we find this modeled in an amazing way. Get ready to discover a Wondrous Hope.

Today we take a few minutes and contemplate one of the “big” questions that many have – creation. Believe it or not, your answer to this question will dictate what happens next in your life.
