It's a cherished Christmas tradition - our vintage electric train!

Three generations love running it through town and tunnel and bridge. Until one of us wannabe engineers runs it too fast for the curves.

Train wreck! Derailed. Going nowhere.

Now, you know, it's possible you know that feeling. Not a derailed train, but like a derailed you. The "merry" of Christmas is lost this year in the wreckage of life that's kind of gone off the rails. Broken dreams, relationships, plans, and a broken heart.

Well, there's good news this Christmas. For 2,000 years, Jesus has been getting derailed lives back on track. The Bible says, "He died for sinners to bring you safely home to God" (1 Peter 3:18). Ultimately, our train wrecks are because we're away from God because of our sin. Which Jesus died to pay for so we could begin a forever relationship with God.

And that's when He does what only He can do - get your life on track. That could start today. Contact us at 888-NEED-HIM or
