Christian Church service help?

Hello everyone, i am a christian myself and for our christmas church service i’ve been asked to preach. This is my first time speaking and i’m extremely nervous about what to say. There are several speakers and i’ve to talk about the actual birth of jesus and the significance of how unexpected it was that the king of kings was born in a dirty old barn,also how humble he was.This is troubling me, any suggestions or links would greatly be appreciated.


For me, I’d have to say Malcolm Smith. Jack Deere has been good and of course there’s C.S. Lewis.

In the apostolic era, there were the Greek-speakers and the Latin-speakers. Today the Eastern church, the Orthodox, inherits the Greek-speaking Christianity which was earlier than the Latin form. St. Peter established the church at Antioch before he ever went to Rome if indeed he went to Rome at all which is questionable. All the various Orthodox churches descend from the original church in the East, and the claim of some Roman Catholics to be the original of all Christianity is clearly bogus; they are the original only of the Western or Latin branch which came later than the Orthodox.

Roman, Anglican and Protestant churches are the Latin branch. The Lutheran Reformation was based on the absurd notion of giving primacy to scripture, ignoring the reality that the church, not a book, is the custodian of Christian doctrine, and that the Bible’s canonicity and its alleged authority was granted to it by the church, not granted to the church by the Bible.
The idea of just that “personal relationship with Christ alone” is called the “me-and-Jesus syndrome”. The fact is that he set up his church on Earth, the body of all baptized believers, the ecclesia. The Protestants, especially the fundie fringe, are all too often lacking in that sense of community, not just buddy-buddy companionship with their own friends in a congregation that meets once a week, but the real sense of being part of the communion of the saints, past and present, in heaven and on Earth. Protestants don’t know what they are missing, and it’s not surprising that so few members become Protestants after they have exerienced the richer life of the three great Catholic faiths, Orthodox, Roman and Anglican.

i know there is short form of english christian name lilke

William = Bill
Robert = Bob

can anyone give me more example of is there a web site for this? i am not an english speaker.

What does this mean? I heard a speaker talking about something and she made reference to when she was a Christian but not spirit filled. How can you truly be a Christian and NOT be spirit filled?

i am president of the Christian club at my school and we have had guest speakers come and give sermons every week so far this year.
got any ideas for a fun activity that can be done with a group of high school students to get them thinking about God
this has to be something we can do in our lunch period, just something quick and fun.
were not trying to convert non believers. our purpose is to give those Christians at the school, and anyone who is not, but is just curious, a place they can go to discuss and learn about God

I live in one of the most Christian towns in the world. try to guess where it is based on this:
-Has 63 churches
– Has more churches per capita than any other town in the U.S.
– Has over 10 Christian private schools
– Has one of the most prestigious Christian colleges in the U.S.
– Many famous pastors/speakers have graduated from that college

Maybe I’m crazy but see if you can guess.

I’m looking for video broadcasts similar to joyce meyer ministries that are good for young couples? My girlfriend has been traumatized by very strict christian parents that she does not see anything “cool” about religion .. I’m looking for a young urban speaker or ministries that can relate to us that want to “start slow” .. something that is not so “heavy”
If anyone understands what I mean please give me some links..
