There is always so much to do to get ready. Christmas takes planning and preparation. Sometimes there doesn’t seem to be enough time. Sometimes there seems to be too much time. We just want Christmas to get here so we can celebrate and enjoy it and be done with the stress of preparation. Yet, without that preparation and planning, Christmas wouldn’t be enjoyable.
Hearts and minds also require preparation for Christmas. Without such preparation, the true joy of Christmas would be lost. Sometimes, this preparation seems a long road to journey. Those who awaited the first Christmas certainly felt it was a long road. All along that journey God spoke through his servants to reassure his people.
Join Beautiful Savior on Wednesday evenings in December as we journey The Long Road to Christmas. We will discuss the words of the biblical book of Joel, as he prepared the people long ago and still prepares us today for the miracle, hope, and rejoicing Christmas brings.
Advent is the season of the church year that prepares our hearts and minds for the coming Savior. We prepare not only for the celebration of his first coming at Christmas, but also the celebration of his second coming. Beautiful Savior will hold Advent devotions on Wednesday December 3, 10, and 17. Suppers will precede the services. The suppers will begin at 5:45pm with the services beginning at 6:30pm.
On the final night, December 17th, everyone is invited to bring a dozen of their favorite Christmas cookies and join in an extended time of fellowship.
