Sermon Notes Matthew 1:18-25 18 Now the birth of Jesus the Messiah took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been engaged to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. 19 Her husband Joseph, being a righteous man and unwilling to expose her to public disgrace, planned to dismiss her quietly. 20 But just when he had resolved to do this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for the child conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will bear a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins." 22 All this took place to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet: 23 "Look, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel," which means, "God is with us." 24 When Joseph awoke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him; he took her as his wife, 25 but had no marital relations with her until she had borne a son; and he named him Jesus.

Helpful Information We hope your worship experience with us will be meaningful. To help you feel a bit more comfortable with our campus and morning programs, we have included a few recommendations. We are glad you are here today! • We would like to get to know you! Each pew has a Welcome Book in which you can let us know prayer requests, sign up for events and update your information. Please pass the Welcome Book down the row so we can hear from everyone! • Communion/Lord’s Supper All followers of Christ are welcome to participate in our Service of Communion. If you have prepared yourself for this very special moment with our Savior, you are invited to his table. (1 Corinthians 11:23-30) • Offering In our first two services, a special time for giving is set aside. Participation is an act of worship and voluntary. During our third service there will not be a time specific for offering but rather boxes are placed at the entry to allow for giving as you are led. • Nursery We have a friendly, well-staffed and impeccably clean nursery located on the North side of the narthex. Please see an usher for directions. Several of our “regularly scheduled” weekly programs will have a special holiday schedule. Please check the “Dates to Remember” section below as it will have the most current events listed.

Welcome!  We are so glad you have joined us this morning!  If you are new to Chaparral, please stop by the Welcome Center and pick up information about our Church.  Getting connected is one of the most important ways to grow your faith and get to know others in meaningful ways. Here at Chaparral, we offer ministries for all ages, men, women, couples as well as fitness classes and much more. In January, we will have a New Member class offered on Sunday nights, and a New Member dinner at the end of the month.   These will offer wonderful opportunities for you to find out more about Chaparral and how you can get involved, and will give you a chance to meet other new people at Church.
