Christmas is a season filled with expectation and celebration, but if we’re being honest, it’s also a season filled with madness. As Christmas approaches, the focus of Advent sometimes gets lost amidst the chaos and craziness that comes with the holiday season. So, to help you focus your attention on the heart behind this special season, we’ve created a four-week devotional to walk you through Advent. Each week focuses on a specific aspect reflected in the birth of King Jesus—hope, peace, joy, and love. Pick yours up at the Info Table and spend the month of December in the Word.
Saturday, December 9, 9:30-11:30 AM, Great Hall. Though Silent Night was written in only a few hours, it perfectly depicts the wonder of God's gift to us on that first Christmas night. Join us as we explore the story and deeper meaning of this beloved Christmas Carol in a special program that will set a tone of peace over your Christmas season. We'll also enjoy a catered brunch, beautifully decorated tables, and great fellowship. Tickets are $15 and you can sign up in the church lobby or online HERE by December 3. Questions? Contact Tanya Preble at firstname.lastname@example.org.
