Advent Study:  Begins on November 26th

Down to Earth:  The Hopes & Fears of All the Years Are Met in Thee Tonight
When heaven comes down to Earth, greatness gets redefined.  Nothing in all the vast, created universe could prepare us for God coming down as a helpless infant, or for Jesus the son of God intentionally positioning himself as a mere servant, identifying with the lowest of lows. It’s enough to confound the mind, to make the heart contrite. This Advent, God’s great surprise changes everything. In their book, Down to Earth, Mike Slaughter and Rachel Billups present a four-week Advent study that opens up God’s Christmas surprise to us and examines how it changed everything.  Our church-wide Advent study is designed to make it easy for you to keep your focus on Christ in the weeks leading up to Christmas.  Families:  Our children will be using the same series in Sunday School, which makes this a great opportunity for your family to share the meaning of this Advent season.

Please sign up by calling Jenn Linton at 508-548-2792 or by filling out the insert in upcoming Sunday Bulletins and giving them to Jenn.  Standard and large print books are $12 – exact cash or check made payable to JWUMC.
