What can we help you find?

Messy Christmas

Christmas is often referred to as the most wonderful time of the year. However, this time of year is also often filled with stress and tension. Many of us have high expectations for what our Christmas should be like, and often those expectations do not line up with reality. Sometimes Christmas is a lot more messy than merry. This series is about discovering the good news of a Christ, who is born in the middle of our messy, imperfect lives. We can find hope that God comes to us in the midst of our messy lives and redeems us.

Messy Expectations

November 29, 2020 by Mark Stuenzi Message 1 of 4

We've all been there. Overcome with frustration and left with nothing but unmet expectations. How should we respond? Do we suck it up and get on with life? Do we just lower our expectations? Or is there another way? If anyone understands this, it’s Joseph. He expected a beautiful wedding and a quiet life with Mary. But all of that was upended, and Joseph had to face some deeply troubling unmet expectations.

Messy Circumstances

December 6, 2020 by Mark Stuenzi Message 2 of 4

The original Christmas story bears no resemblance to the sanitized version we sometimes imagine. Jesus was born into a messy world. That was intentional. When we look at our circumstances and wonder if anything good could come from them, remember the messy circumstances of that first Christmas.

Messy Past

December 13, 2020 by David Ashcraft Message 3 of 4

Shame is a tool that Satan uses to keep us feeling like we don’t belong. And that can cause us to feel isolated and hopeless. But an unlikely, and often skipped-over, part of the Christmas story offers a different perspective. Even better, it offers hope and redemption. This week’s message comes from David Ashcraft, Senior Pastor of LCBC Church.

Cleaning Up Your Mess

December 20, 2020 by Mark Stuenzi Message 4 of 4

Life is messy. We try our best to do the right thing, but sometimes the decisions we make leave us elbow-deep in our good intentions. In this message, we'll be talking about what it looks like when we can't get ourselves clean on our own, and what it means when God shows up in the middle of our mess.
