Join us for this fascinating 4-week Advent Study
The coming of God into this world to be a man figures among the greatest events in all human history. This four-week series is designed to help Christians reconnect with the real meaning of Christmas by considering one-by-one the main characters of the Christmas story: Mary, Joseph, the shepherds and the Wise Men. Each was a disciple of Jesus -- St. Mary, the first disciple, followed by each of the others who recognized this newborn as the Messiah and reordered their lives around Him as a result. This is an old story, but by reexamining it in thoughtful detail from Scripture, you will re-experience its power and truth. Christmas is not only about spiced cider, gaily-wrapped presents, and shining ornaments. It is about the incarnation, the infleshment of the Son of God as a human being. This amazing story unfolded among real people whom God called for a purpose beyond themselves -- and who responded, "Yes," when called. It is a story of discipleship and risk. Of faith and hope. Of intimate, caring love and bold never-to-turn-back decisions. The true story of Christmas has the power to re-ignite living faith in you and deepen the quality of your discipleship.
Our journey of rediscovering Christmas begins Wednesday, December 8 at 6:00 pm in the Parish Hall. Join us!
