Once again we will join our Morning Worship and Spiritual Formation during the season of Advent using a devotional book called Sent: Delivering the Gift of Hope at Christmas by Jorge Acevedo and other contributing authors. Together we will travel through a 5-week journey to discover how, where and why we are sent based on the coming of Jesus as the Christ-child. This book will challenge us through story, art and Bible study using daily readings and reflections including Scripture, insights, daily challenges and prayers. The five weekly themes are: 1. Jesus Reconciles; 2. Jesus Sets Us Free; 3. Jesus is God With Us; 4. Jesus Brings New Life; and 5. Jesus Changes Everything. Readings begin on Monday, November 26, in preparation for the first Sunday of Advent, December 2. Books will be available for purchase beginning Sunday November 11 in between worship services. Books will also be available for purchase in the church offices beginning November 12, Monday – Thursday between the hours of 9-4. Books are being offered for a discounted price of $5 each.
