THE WONDER OF CHRISTMAS

No other time of the year captures our imagination as much as Christmas: God coming into the world on a dark winter’s night; a baby’s cry that would change the course of human history; the heavens bursting into song; the certain hope that God will have the last word over our brokenness.  This season fills our hearts with the wonder that anything is possible. Rediscover the true wonder of Christmas by sharing the love of Christ with others. This four-week study centers on looking to the Christmas story and the stories of real people today to find inspiration and ideas for reflecting the light of Jesus at Christmas time and throughout the entire year.
