News, announcements, and a word of encouragement.
Friends — 
One of my favorite things about being a dad during Advent is watching my kids get caught up in the anticipation and expectations of Christmas. From setting up lights and decorations, to watching Christmas movies, and going through our Family Advent devotional after dinner, there’s something about waiting for Christmas with them. 

When Hailey and I first got married, we brought traditions from both sides of our families into our life together. Then, when our kids were born, we began building our own. As our family expanded, and continues to expand with new friends and neighbors, we’re introduced to new traditions and new celebrations. We can’t wait for BethEx to be one of those NEW celebrations for our family next weekend! 

Next Sunday, we’ll have one worship service at 10:00am. We'll continue exploring Jesus’ genealogy, focusing in on how his expanded family reveals God’s faithfulness. Following our worship service we’ll all chip in to help clean up the Bethlehem Experience set, so come in your grubby work clothes! Lunch will be served in the Fellowship Center as well. 

With Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love,

Pastor Dave
