Everyone is welcome to join us for these amazing opportunities to grow in discipleship during the Advent and Christmas season.
The Walk to Bethlehem is an imaginary Advent walk. Anyone can participate regardless of age or physical fitness level. Participants will track daily activity, activity minutes, miles, or steps for the week using an app, electronic device or free pedometers provided. Participants will report their numbers weekly to this link or fill out a logging card provided in the Church Narthex, Family Life Center Lobby, or pew pads and place them in the offering plates or baskets provided. Gather on Sundays at 4:00 p.m. (October 29th will be at 5:00 p.m.) in the Youth Building for devotion followed by exercise, biking, chair exercises, or running. The goal is to collectively walk 6221 miles to Bethlehem by January 6, 2018!! For more information, email Pastor Monica.
From his beginnings as a humble carpenter to his all-important role as the earthly father of Jesus Christ, Joseph's place in the nativity story is sometimes overlooked but contains valuable lessons for all of us. Join Adam Hamilton as he examines Christmas through the eyes of Joseph. Absent from much of the biblical narrative, Joseph never spoke a word, but his courageous actions were crucial to the birth of Christ and God's salvation plan for humanity. As you read this book, you will understand how Joseph's story is much like our own. In life, we encounter circumstances that we would never have chosen for ourselves. At times it can be tempting just to walk away. Joseph provides us a great example of humbly obeying God even when we don't understand and faithfully moving forward in the strength that God provides.
