It's a trip back in time to John and Mary Morrison's first Christmas in Coleraine where we'll discover how this young couple first came to know the true spirit of giving, and illustrated the greatest undeserved gift!
How about you
Did you ever wonder why Christmas is a time for giving gifts?

As you may or may not know, Christmas is about something greater than just Santa and decorations. It is the time of year set apart for celebrating the birth of Jesus! "Why is this important and what does it have to do with gifts?" you ask. Well, what if in addition to getting presents from your grandparents, your Mom and Dad, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles and friends, God was to offer you a gift this year? What kind of cool gift do you think God could come up with? He created the oceans, trees, ostriches, Jupiter, theGrand Canyon, and puppies, so He can probably come up with something pretty cool, right? What if God gave us Himself? That's just what He did. One night, two thousand years ago, God became a human and was born just like you were--they named Him Jesus. The reason He did this was so He could live the same kind of life we all do. Full of sleeping and waking, working and playing, laughing and crying, learning and teaching, temptation and
Sin--that's the one thing we've all done that He didn't do. The reason He came was not just so He could live a sin-free life, though. He came to pay the price for our sins--to die in our place, so that we could be saved and live forever with Him. That was God's true gift. And to get it, all we have to do is receive it.
