I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Hard to believe the holidays are already upon us, but it’s a great time for celebration!
The church is beautifully decorated (thanks to our Art Committee and helpers), the musicians are tuning up, the weather is turning colder and the season of Advent is here!
Advent is a time of waiting and preparation for the celebration of Christmas. This year we’re going to take some time to focus on one of the traditions of Christmas in the 21st century: watching Christmas movies.
Our Advent sermon series, “Christmas at the Movies” will look at some of the Advent themes in some real Christmas classics.
This week, I’ll be looking at one of the favorites I’ve had since I was a kid: “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”
The classic Christmas special turns 50 this year and it speaks to one of the great themes of the Advent season—that God doesn’t seem to look for the shiny and successful to accomplish His purposes; instead, God chooses those who really need Him and His love.
Join us as we enjoy some clips from the show and explore the deep meaning of Christmas.
