Wow! Another Christmas has come and gone! But the time is still dark and cold, and it may still feel this way in spite of recent celebrations. After Christmas can be a harsh disappointment because what the world promised, doesn't happen ... the toys aren't as good, the colorful lights didn't bring joy, the craving for family wasn't fulfilled, emotions wrung dry. But please don't miss the fact that Jesus has come! His promise to take away sin, His claim that you are His joy, that He has become human and walked our world to fulfill every expectation and more is His Christmas gift to you. May Jesus bear you up in this mid-winter time. May He bring light and warmth and hope into your life. Jesus is always your Immanuel, God with us.
There are few places in the United States that experience winter as we do in Alaska. The cold temperatures, the dry snow, and the long, dark nights all make for a life experience few others have. The Alaskan winters can also be challenging. During the long dark Alaska winters we take strength in and we want to share Jesus, “the light of the world.” (John 8:12) Come and join us in worship, Bible Study, Fellowship and Service Opportunities as we share God’s light and love in a dark world.
