1 PEACE LOVE HOPE Christmas At Hillsong Los Angeles

2 Blessings to you at Christmas! Christmas is a season of gathering together with friends and family, of warm wishes and hope for the future. It is a time to celebrate the birth of our Saviour King, Jesus Christ... the incarnation of reconciliation with God, peace on earth and Good News for all. This message is in vivid contrast to the world currently surrounding us with its intensifying challenges of natural disasters, terror and displacement. Christmas offers the much needed light of peace, hope and love over an uncertain future for many. As we approach the holiday season, it is our privilege to present an open invitation to any and all in our community to join us for our Christmas services. We believe you will personally experience the love of a good God and the good news Jesus brings. Bring your family, your friends, or just come along yourself. Our desire is to bless you - and those you share life with - with the warmth of community and visually beautiful and creative presentations of the Christmas message. We are confident you will leave uplifted and encouraged. And now, may The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace. Numbers 6: [NKJV] God bless you, Brian & Bobbie Houston Global Senior Pastors Hillsong Church - 2 -

4 A Christmas Greeting From Our Hillsong California Pastors Hey Church! It s that time of year again! Christmas is just around the corner and we are so excited to personally invite you to celebrate with us at Hillsong church! Our hope and prayer as a church family is that there would always be a tangible sense of welcome home and all that represents. Our heart is that each and every person who walks through the doors would feel a genuine warmth and welcome, an ease to be themselves, and be found amongst a company of people who love and believe in them. Above all else our prayer and purpose is to point people to Jesus. Believing that countless people would encounter his love and presence this holiday season. So consider yourself invited to celebrate the Christmas season with us at our Christmas Eve/Christmas Day services, the Christmas Spec presentation, and all of our holiday weekend services at any of our campuses, whether in Orange County, Los Angeles, or San Francisco! We have great and exciting things planned for all ages and we can t wait to see you there! All our love, Ben & Luc xox

6 GIVE LOVE Every Child Has a Story For 2.7 million children in the U.S., that story may be filled with the abandonment, loneliness, and shame that come from having a mom or dad in prison. Angel Tree, a program of Prison Fellowship reaches out to the children of prisoners and their families with the love of Christ and with a gift on behalf of the family member in prison. This unique program gives us an opportunity to share God s love by helping to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the families of prisoners. Check out the Angel Tree in our campus foyer on Sunday
