Jesus 101: Advent & Christmas Editions
Two thousand years ago, Jesus was born in Bethlehem...and His birth- day is still one of the world’s greatest celebrations! Every year, the Church prepares to celebrate Jesus arrival with the season of “Advent.” (Advent literally means “the arrival of a notable person or thing.”) The four Sunday’s leading up to Christmas are marked by re- minders that Jesus is the source of our Hope, Joy, Peace and Love.
We’re actually starting our Advent focus a little early this year (but not as early as Walmart) as we wrap up our 12-week “Jesus 101” sermon series. Here’s our message schedule for Advent:
Why did Jesus come to earth?
Our Prospect Choir (joined by our Kids Choir) will present “Darkness into Light” proclaiming the Christmas story through song.
Christmas Eve/December 24th:
What difference has Jesus made in history?
I hope you are already making plans to join us for Advent at Prospect, and are beginning to think of family, friends and coworkers you can invite to join us!
