“Learning and Living in Christ Together”

“Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit.”

“So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flocks by night.”
