ADVENT SMALL GROUPS

Unpacking the True Meaning of Christmas

Unpacking the True Meaning of Christmas will be a four week Advent study Wednesdays 7:15 – 8:00pm on Zoom beginning November 30th. The study will be based on the Gospel of Luke and devotionals by Pastor Mike Novotny of Time of Grace Ministry. Each week will include a short video, discussion time, and prayer. The study will be facilitated by John Oliver and Mike Thornton. All adults are welcome.

Prepare the Way for the Lord

Gather with others for an all-new Advent Bible Study, Prepare the Way for the Lord. This study examines the life of John the Baptist, and how John calls all followers of Jesus to prepare our hearts for his coming. Each week, we’ll examine different themes through reflection with DVD, conversation and scripture. Please think about who you might invite to join you.
