Message Series

What do you love most about Christmas?

Is it the family traditions, the food, the feeling of goodwill?

Is it the music? The songs that move us, that remind us of the wonder and mystery of this season. The words that whisper of peace on earth and joy to a weary world.

Visit Living Word this December and experience the music, the story, and the heart of what Christmas is all about.
