CHRISTMAS SERIES BEGINS DECEMBER 1
How do you find Him in all the commercialism? Where can you see Him in the lights, the presents, and the holiday parties? You don’t have to look far, but you have to look beyond the sights and sounds of the season. You can find the Christ of Christmas in the unexpected, the unscripted, the unfamiliar, and the unbelievable. But you CAN find Him. Join us for this four week Christmas series “SEARCHING FOR CHRISTMAS”, and discover how to find Christ in a culture that has tried to remove Him, or at least obscure Him from the Holiday Season. Here is the schedule…
DECEMBER 1 – “Find Him In The Unexpected”
For Mary and Joseph the entire Christmas scenario was unexpected. Let’s be honest. Many of us don’t deal well with the unexpected. In this opening message we will learn how to respond when God puts us in an unexpected situation. Believe it or not, we can find Christ there.
DECEMBER 8 – “Find Him In The Unscripted”
Reality Television is still a big thing nowadays. From Dancing with the Stars to Survivor to Big Brother, we love the unscripted reality shows. But how do we deal with life when it becomes unscripted? Suddenly, it’s not so attractive anymore. In Mary’s response, we will discover that when we recognize our lives are unscripted… that our greatest plans are not going to happen…we can still find Christ there.
DECEMBER 15 – “Find Him In The Unfamiliar”
Part of what makes the Christmas season so meaningful for many of us is the familiarity. We are familiar with the story, the decorations, the music, and the atmosphere. However, the unfamiliar frightens us at times. Mary and Joseph found themselves in an unfamiliar location, surrounded by unfamiliar people, in an unfamiliar environment. We will see how their response proves that God is still at work – and Christ can be found - even in the unfamiliar.
DECEMBER 22 – “Find Him In The Unbelievable”
The first ones to receive the news of Jesus’ birth was a group of illiterate and unrefined shepherds. How could someone so undeserving be on the top of God’s list? Perhaps it’s because God wants EVERYONE to find His Son. And for those who find Him, there are four unbelievable gifts waiting especially for them.
