Christmas is my favorite time of the year...

Dear Friends,

Christmas is my favorite time of the year, and I know I am not alone. It's impossible to deny the amazing feelings that we all experience every year at this time. The familiar songs being plaed literally everywhere, the shopping, the special times at church, and the family celebrations all remind us that it is a different season indeed.

In the midst of all this hoopla, we cannot forget the world-changing event that we celebrate on Christmas. God came to Earth, in the weakest of all forms, to reach His creation in a way that we needed. This humility, this love, this demonstration of ultimate power setting aside all rights and privilege; this changed the world! As we enter this marvelous season at Lake Union, I wanted to bring some things to your attention. I'll start with the biggest change; we are going to be holding FOUR services for Christmas. We want to make sure that there is room for everyone, and we know you do too. On Sunday, December 23, we will meet at 9 and 10:30 am. On Christmas Eve, we will meet at 4 and 5:30 pm. The services will be different each day, and I encourage you to make time for both. I believe you will be blessed as you set aside time for Jesus this season!

I want to thank you for making Lake Union your church home. I'm glad you are here, and I am praying that all of you have an amazing Christmas season this year.

In God's grip,
Pastor Mark
