Advent is a season to prepare for the coming of the Christ child. Throughout Advent, our study and sermon series will prepare our hearts and homes for Christmas.

Wednesday, November 20, marked the start of our Advent Study entitled Almost Christmas. The author’s description will whet your appetite, “In 1741, John Wesley preached his famous sermon titled “The Almost Christian” in which he encouraged people to follow Christ wholeheartedly. We should not be satisfied with being almost Christian but rather strive towards being altogether a Christian.”

Study sessions scheduled for Wednesdays are: November 20 – Altogether Peace [Chapter 1], December 4 – Altogether Hope [Chapter 2], December 11 – Altogether Love [Chapter 3], December 18 – Altogether Joy [Chapter 4]

Before each session, I would encourage you to read the specific chapter as it applies to the weekly lesson. As a result, we will share in meaningful conversations throughout our series. Class sessions are at 1:30 or 6 p.m.

Our sermon series, The Christmas Experience, The Nativity Story in Real Time opens Sunday, December 1. Throughout these messages, you will experience the nativity through the eyes of Joseph, Mary, the Shepherds, and the Wise Men. Each drawing us closer to the manger.

December 1 – The Courage of Joseph, [Matthew 1:18], December 8 – The Faith of Mary, [Luke 1], December 22 – The Joy of the Shepherds, [Luke 2], December 29 – The Hope of the Wise Men, [Matthew 2:1-12]

As Sojourners we will travel this road together, as we prepare our hearts to see the babe in the manger, Jesus Christ.

Stay Faithful and Remember YOU, Matter,
