12/24 Fifth Sunday of Advent and the Lighting of the "Christ Candle" and Celebration of Christmas Eve Morning with Holy Communion

Message: “The Yearly Christmas Challenge”

Scripture Lesson: Matthew 2:1-2 and 2:7-12

Now, after the angels appeared to the shepherds out in the fields, why did the shepherds go to Bethlehem on Christmas Eve?

          Why did the Wise Men come to Bethlehem?            See Matthew 2:2

So, did the Wise Men and the shepherds have different purposes in mind when they came to celebrate Jesus’ birth? (Luke 1:15 & 1:20)

Why do people celebrate Jesus’ birth today and tonight and tomorrow? Is there a difference between “observing” and “worshiping?”

12/17 "Message: “Christmases Falling Short of ‘Great Joy!"

The Fourth Advent Candle: “The Candle of Joy!”

Let us worship God for today there is “good news of great joy, which we celebrate…

Scripture Lesson: Luke 2:3-14

Dec. 10th - 3rd Sunday of Advent: "The Teaching Candle"

Invite a teacher and be ready to share a teacher who has impacted your life!

Scripture References:  John 15: 15-16 & Mark 6: 7

Today’s candle is “The Teaching Candle.” It is interesting that in the King James translation, Jesus is never referred to in the gospels as “teacher.” In other translations, Jesus is called “teacher,” but the King James offers the same word as “Master!” To be called “Teacher” or “Rabbi” was a great title of respect. “Rabbi” meant “great” or “many” at its root.

Dear Friends in Christ,

We spent last Sunday 11/26 at Aim in "Thanksgiving Song. And, we celebrated the first Sunday of Advent in a Lord's Supper Celebration, as we counted and shared all we were thankful for. We acknowledged that Thanksgiving is so important to any celebration of Advent and Christmas by designating the first candle of Advent as "The Candle of Thanksgiving."

“What’s My Tribe? Who Is My Family? Who Am I?”

Scripture Lesson: Read Micah 6:6-8

  If we are “in Christ,” we have an “identity challenge” and “family issues!” Look at what Jesus said on one occasion: Matthew 12:46-48   It gets worse in Matthew 10:34-39

     What does God want me to do with my life? How can I be acceptable and/or Pleasing to God? See what Paul says in Romans 12:1-2

10:30am - 11:30am Sunday Funday Theme is "Thanksgiving"

We are thankful for our veterans. So, we will be helping and joining those of the younger generation write cards expressing thanksgiving for our veterans and their contributions to our country and us.

Tommy Nance Video Nov. 6th 1:11pm

At “Aim Church” we are teaching what we are still trying to learn! I am still trying to learn how to deal with evil and problems and tribulations in my own life. But, I have to help others do likewise. I suppose you could say we are all “a work in progress.” Whether it’s a small town in Texas-at a church no less; or in Las Vegas at a concert; or here in Virginia on the campus of Virginia Tech, how do we explain why we live in “a broken world?” How can we help one another be ready for the brokenness that we have to face in life? In conversations with others, do you know what usually comes up? The Negatives of Life! No matter how religious a person is-no matter how good a neighbor you are; no matter how much money or power we have, we wonder about how good news the gospel is when evil happens!....
