Books are available for purchase in the church office for $12.00. Large print copies are available.
The study is described below:
“Learn the meaning behind the names of Christ and the difference He makes in our lives this Christmas.
His parents gave him the name Jesus. But the prophets, the shepherds, the wise men, and the angels addressed him by other names. They called him Lord, Messiah, Savior, Emmanuel, Light of the World, and Word Made Flesh. In Incarnation: Rediscovering the Significance of Christmas, best-selling author Adam Hamilton examines the names of Christ used by the gospel writers, exploring the historical and personal significance of his birth. This Advent season church families will come together to remember what’s important. In the face of uncertainty and conflict, Christians reclaim the Christ child who brings us together, heals our hearts, and calls us to bring light into the darkness. Now more than ever, we invite you to reflect upon the significance of the Christ child for our lives and world today!” (https://www.cokesbury.com/Incarnation-1-2)
Wednesdays, 11:00 am, Prayer Group
With all the growth and activity in our church and having learned about developing a life of prayer, our church has embarked on a journey in praying together. Pastor Rebecca leads a prayer meeting in back of the church or in the Sanctuary in the event of rain) every Wednesday at 11 am. Scripture and a prayer outline are provided for us to pray together for our church, its people, and other concerns brought to us. This meeting generally lasts between 30-40 minutes, and you can add people/situations/prayers of your own. There is a deep sense of “joy” in coming together with fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, praying to God for our church and one another.
