Jackson Chapel Church

Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people; for there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:10-11.

Bro. Gary Fant got the morning worship service started off with “Joy to the World,” “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear” and “Silent Night.”

Bro. Dennis’ text came from Philippians 2:5-11: As Christians, we need to remember the real reason we celebrate Christmas. It is not about the gifts we exchange or jolly ol’ Saint Nick. Instead, it is about the greatest gift that anyone could ever receive, and that is the gift of salvation. We need to be very careful not to get caught up in all the events that take place, because if we take Christ out of Christmas, we have missed the whole meaning of Christmas. The service ended with the altar filled with people praying.

Please remember these as you pray: Alex Rutherford, Jason Price, the Floyd Logan family, James and Marie Johnson, the Rhodes family, our service men and women and our lost loved ones.

We are located at 4020 Yellow Leaf Road in Clanton. Our service times are: Sunday school at 10 a.m., Sunday morning worship at 11 a.m., Sunday evening worship at 6 p.m. and Wednesday Bible study at 7 p.m.
