December 4, 2022, Family Cathedral Service
"Rescued by the Lord" - Rev. Eric H. Carswell

Many of us are inspired by stories of someone being rescued. As we prepare for Christmas, we can remember it is the beginning of a story of the greatest rescue ever. The Lord rescued all of us from certain unhappiness through His life in this world.

December 4, 2022, Adult Cathedral Service
"The Lord Came to Bring Us from Darkness to Light" - Rev. Eric H. Carswell

Wise people know that without help, their lives would not go well. The joy of Christmas is that it is a story of the Lord coming to give us help through all He did while in the world. He truly provided that each of us can go from times of darkness to the light of hope and confidence in His salvation.
(Interim Holy Supper – with juice/GF options)
