The Christmas Puzzle

December 01-29, 2018

 

Few anticipate how the arrival of a baby will shake up their lives. But when that baby is Jesus, plans are rearranged, beliefs are challenged, and ordinary people find their lives changed forever! Join us this holiday season as we put together the Christmas Puzzle piece by piece. We’ll find out where we fit, and see that when Jesus enters the picture, OUR plans may get turned upside down, but HIS plan leads to Peace, Hope and Joy!

The Christmas Puzzle: The Joy Puzzle
Crosswinds Church, 29263 Ironwood Ave, Moreno Valley, CA 92555, USA
What steals your joy? Is it the negative post you read on social media? Is it the bills that are overdue? Is it the number on the bathroom scale this morning? The good news of Christmas is that Jesus came to give us “great joy” in spite of what life throws at us! Very puzzling!

The Christmas Puzzle: The Puzzle of Saying "Yes!"
Crosswinds Church, 29263 Ironwood Ave, Moreno Valley, CA 92555, USA
As the Virgin Mary was to discover, sometimes saying “Yes” to God doesn’t lead to a carefree life; a life without worries or problems. On the contrary, saying “Yes” can lead to being misunderstood, criticized, and even having your character questioned by those who are puzzled by your decision.

Christmas Eve Candlelight Service: The Puzzle of Belief
Crosswinds Church, 29263 Ironwood Ave, Moreno Valley, CA 92555, USA
It would have been hard to believe that Jesus was the Son of God. The people of that day were expecting the arrival of Savior who would restore their nation to glory! They were puzzled when a baby showed up! We also often have a pretty good idea of what we need, only to see God work in a completely different way!
December 29 (Sunday)
9-10:30am

10:45am-12pm
The Christmas Puzzle: The Puzzle of Obedience
Crosswinds Church, 29263 Ironwood Ave, Moreno Valley, CA 92555, USA
To obey or not to obey; that was the question. Who should those ‘wise men from the east’ obey: Herod the king or the warning in the dream that came from God? This puzzle remains with us today: What should I do when I’m faced with the choice to obey either God or a human authority?
