Preparing our hearts for Christmas
Children Waiting for Christmas!
Advent is a significant time of preparation for our celebration of Christmas, the birth of Jesus. Beginning Sunday, November 30th, I will begin delivering a series to Live Life Differently entitled: “Not a Silent Night: Mary Looks Back to Bethlehem” “From Jesus’ birth to his death, one woman stood at the center of it all. Mary shaped his childhood, and she wept at his tomb. This simple servant of the Lord watched in awe as God’s salvation for the world was revealed through her beloved son. The mother of Jesus was a woman from humble means who found favor with God. What was she like as a person? Why was she given her remarkable task? What does the Bible teach us about her, and what meaning does her life have for ours? Join us as we light the Advent candles, sing favorite carols, prepare our hearts for Christmas, and study the real life of Mary.

Small Group Study
A spiritual formation group encourages individuals to focus on deep questions such as:
How is God working in my life?
How am I being formed in the likeness of Christ?
What practices will open me to God's leading?
* You will explore the depths of scripture, learn to listen to God through it, and allow your life to be shaped by the Word.
* You will experience new dimensions of prayer, try fresh ways of opening to God, and learn what it means to practice the presence of God.
*You will reflect on Christ's call in your life and discover anew the gifts that God is giving you for living out your personal ministry.
*You and members of your group will grow together as a Christian community and gain skills in learning how small groups in the church become settings for spiritual guidance.
