Sermon Series – Wisdom and Promise

Old Testament Words for Today

Even the title “OLD” may discourage us from thinking that there are important and current teachings that we can embrace.  The books of the Old Testament give us history, story, teaching’s that are full of insight, valuable revelations about who God is, and what God is about then and today. 

Join us on starting this Sunday,  November 10, and on November 17 and 24 as we get in touch with some of the rich Words given for our spirit and life!

“Meeting the Messiah: Scriptures for the Advent Season”
 
Journey through this Advent season with a purposeful focus on the Christ child. MEETING THE MESSIAH encourages you to slow down and pay attention to the real meaning of Christmas. Six weeks of short readings and guided reflection will enrich your celebration of Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany. You will be filled with joy and thanksgiving as you think about scripture passages from the perspectives of the Holy Spirit, John the Baptist, Mary, the shepherds, the Magi, and Jesus himself. This year, look closely at the Christ child as if you were meeting him for the first time.
