Month: December 2018

Don’t Miss Christmas

Through the month of December, students will be diving into the biblical story of the first Christmas. We will be taking a little different look, with the intention to no miss the main point of Christmas, Christ.

As our gift from God, Jesus would leave His throne in Heaven, be wrapped in flesh, and become the perfect, sinless sacrifice to reconcile humanity to God. Because of this, we are counted righteous, holy, redeemed, and adopted by our heavenly Father.

Week 1 – Dec 5th: Small Things: A Christmas Story – Luke 1:26-38
Week 2 – Dec 12th: The Gift That Changed Everything – Luke 2:1-20
Week 3 – Dec 19th: The (Giving) Spirit of Christmas – Matthew 2:7-11

Each week, students 7th – 12th grade can join in from 5-7pm in the Refuge.
