Advent Series ‘Greater Than: Following Jesus According to the Book of Hebrews”
During the season leading up to Christmas, we’re bombarded by options of what to desire. “What do you want for Christmas?” we ask each other. Sometimes we get what we want in a tiny blue box or a shiny silver bag. But do the gifts under the tree satisfy our deepest longings? Can what we desire really fit into a box or gift bag? To be human is to desire. God has given us desire so that we will seek and search for Him. Our desires, though now fed by modern advertising and Instagram influencers, are nothing new to the state of humanity. This Advent, we’ll be exploring the theme of desire, and how specific characters in the Advent story desired. How does their desire align with our desire? We’ll also explore how desires can spread through culture, and how it will never be fulfilled until it finds its rest in Jesus, the desire of every nation.
We offer a variety of children’s programming on Sunday mornings during our 10:30 service. Sunday Kids Camp is for older elementary kids with an age-appropriate Bible lesson and large group games and activities. Little Lambs is a quieter structure for preschoolers thru first grade with a Bible lesson, games, free play and art. The nursery is available for ages birth through age 5 with lots of free play, crafting and a Bible story. Planning to send your kids? Please complete our consent form here (one needed per family each school year). Please sign-in your child outside the sanctuary before the service. Questions? Please contact Miriam Canfield. We look forward to seeing you!
