Sermon Series – The Christmas Miracle

The Christmas Miracle

How to welcome God’s work in your life
 

“Your holy Father is ready to bring wonders to you, to work them in you, that through you He might change the world around you!” – Jack Hayford

The Christmas Miracle is this: God came to Mary, an ordinary, imperfect maiden, and by the Holy Spirit miraculously conceived in her Jesus – God’s own son and the Savior of the world. This miracle contains a promise for you! God wants to come to you, an ordinary, imperfect person, and work miraculously in you to change your life, and then work through you to bring his salvation and life to others.

“But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.” – The Apostle Paul (2 Corinthians 4:7)

Men’s Friday Morning Breakfast

33v1-530

January-May, 2016

Beginning January 15, the Men at Rockford Reformed will resume meeting every other Friday morning in the Fireside Room from 6:30 to 7:30 to begin to discover God’s real plan for men. We’ll be learning what it really means to be a man and capture an inspiring vision of authentic manhood.
 
We’ll be watching “33” – a series of video talks that look at the 33 years of Jesus’ life on earth to give us a model of true manhood. See the trailer here. Though we’ve gone through this series before, we are doing it again, this time at a slower pace. So, if you missed it the first time around, now’s your chance to dive in!
 
Here’s the schedule:
  • 6:30am Breakfast – eggs, pancakes, oatmeal, granola bars, and coffee
  • 6:45am Video & Discussion – while we’re finishing breakfast we’ll watch an inspiring video together, then talk about what we just learned and how it impacts our lives
 
The ten sessions will include:
  • Create and Cultivate (Jan 15, 2016)
  • Create and Cultivate (Jan 29)
  • Manhood Definition (Feb 12)
  • Manhood Definition (Feb 26)
  • King/Warrior (Mar 11)
  • King/Warrior (Mar 25)
  • Lover/Friend (Apr 8)
  • Lover/Friend (Apr 22)
  • Seasons (May 6)
  • Seasons (May 20)
 
If you have any questions, you can contact Kevin Johnson, Seth Clayton, or Bren Shantz.

Room Numbers

You may have noticed that our room numbers have changed! Our old numbering system was the result of multiple building additions over the years. While we may have gotten used to it, newcomers find it confusing. We have renumbered the entire building to bring us into alignment with industry standards – 100s on the first level, 200s on the second level, room 250 is directly above 150, evens and odds on opposite sides of the hall, etc. You can click here to view the new layout. (click here to download and print a pdf copy)
 
Because much of our printed literature may still reference the old room numbers (we are trying to transition everything, but things are going to slip through the cracks), you can use the following conversion chart with the old vs. new room numbers.
Old — New
 
1 — 212
2 — 214
3 — 213
4 — 211
5 — 112
6 — 114
7 — 113
Old — New
 
8 — 111
9 — 122
10 — 124
11 — 126
12 — 125
13 — 123
14 — 132
Old — New
 
15 — 134
16 — 131
20 — 253
21 — 252
22 — 250
23 — 249
24 — 247
25 — 246
