Advent 2017 Study
Faithful: Christmas Through the Eyes of Joseph
Holidays can get complicated – especially for busy families. Amid the decorations, gifts and parties, we celebrate one simple message: A child was born and the world was forever changed. Maybe it’s been a while since you were in church, and that’s okay. Now is the perfect time to share Christmas with your family.
This new study starts Wednesday, Nov. 29th in room 49 with Rev. Betty. Choose to come at 9:30 am or 7:00 pm.
We’re not that different from Joseph. True, we may not be part of a story that will be remembered for all time, but like Joseph, we encounter circumstances that we’d never choose for ourselves. At times, it can be tempting just to walk away, but Joseph provides us a great example of humbly obeying God even when we don’t understand, faithfully moving forward in the strength that God provides.
Advent starts the first Sunday in December – won’t you come join us?
