An angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today.”

Share The Joy
Join us as we share the joy together this Christmas. We invite you to use our Advent Guide to pray, share locally, and give globally with our church family.
Every day, over the four weeks of Advent, let’s pray and ask God about how we can share the good news with those around us. God is already moving so let’s pay attention to how He is inviting us to join Him!
Each Sunday, we will hear stories of how our partners around the world are sharing the good news with all generations, cultures, seekers, and experiences. As we are encouraged by their testimonies, our Advent Prayer Guide will point us to different ways we can share God’s love throughout the week.

Global Mission is all about sharing the good news of Jesus with people everywhere – from right outside our doorsteps, to communities all around our world.
This Christmas, we’re coming together to join our global partners who are sharing the joy in over 40 countries with Christ’s holistic ministry of compassion, justice, and evangelism. As we hear their stories, let’s ask God about how we can be a part of sharing the joy through intentional and faithful generosity.
Good news and great joy for all people – we do this together!

Connection between God and all people.
In the beginning, God established connection with mankind. Adam and Eve enjoyed that connection with Him. But when sin entered the story, our connection with God was broken – and throughout the Old Testament, we read the narrative of struggle for reconnection.
The Good News is that God desires connection with His people, so He sent Jesus here on earth – to live, die, and rise again. Because of Jesus, we are saved from our sin and connected with our Father again! This is truly good news and great joy for all people.
Connection with one another.
We were created to live in community. As believers, we get to live in the connection and oneness that the good news has brought us into and celebrate the beauty of Christ shining through our diverse cultures, generations, and perspectives.
Here at The Peoples Church, we are a global church family with over 200 mission partners serving all over the world. As we join God in His global mission, we are connected by His Spirit in all that we do together.
Use our Christmas Playlist on YouTube to watch and listen to the amazing stories of how the good news and great joy of Jesus is being shared around the world and in our church community! Our playlist also includes sermons about our Christmas theme and ways to pray and worship together!
