What’s on your Christmas list this year?  How about the greatest gift of all…God’s gift to us of a Savior?  Sometimes we concentrate so much on the gifts we want to give and to receive that we forget about the special gifts of Christmas.  The truth is we need the miracle of God’s grace to see them, feel them, hear them, wrap our arms around them, and celebrate them.  This five-week Advent study helps us think about what we really want for Christmas by reminding us of the amazing, life-changing gifts Christmas has in store for us.   Each chapter includes questions for reflection and discussion, a brief prayer, a focus for the week, and six daily Bible readings for personal devotional time.  This description has taken from the Cokesbury website at

Jennifer Henton will be leading this Advent Bible Study on MONDAYS from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm beginning November 19, 2018 and ending December 17, 2018.  

Please call the church and leave a message indicating if you would prefer regular or LARGE print.

Thank you!  We hope to see you there!!
