After the usual, “Ho, ho, ho’s” and “What is your name?” questions, the boy was finally asked what it was that he wanted for Christmas. “I would like two toy trucks,” replied the lad. “And I want two teddy bears, two remote control cars, and two video games.”

“Well, “ replied Santa. “that certai

While many people will see this as the beginning of the Christmas or Holiday season, we know the meaning goes much deeper as we work to center our hearts and minds on the true Reason For The Season.

Pastor Andy and Pastor Nancy will use the Advent season as a platform for a four-part sermon series and Bible St
