For the 2018 Season of Advent, something new. Advent devotionals are being made available to all members of the church and guests too. Each is designed to help us ‘enter in‘ to the story of our King and Savior, Jesus Christ. You can pick up a devotional of your choice beginning Sunday, November 25. You will see them at all the entrances to the church. Check out what’s in store for children, teens, and adults!
Children – What Child is This?…Jesus, of course! For each day of advent, children will read a Scripture story about other children in the Bible who lead the way to Jesus and place a hand print or foot print on the pop-up manger.
In this devotional, “teens are encouraged to open their eyes, ears and hearts to receive and share the powerful and eternal Word of God. Our Salvation comes through the spoken Word that sparked creation, the written Word that foretold our salvation, the Living Word that cooed and cried out from the Bethlehem manger, the everlasting Word that we are blessed to share.”
Adults – Last year, we chose a Henri Nouwen book and were blown away by his writings and prayers. This year we chose to do another, The Father’s Love, which is inspired by Nouwen’s writings.
