Come Thou Long Expected Jesus

Come Thou Long Expected Jesus
Dec 2017
It’s an old, old story. Older then we know.

When we think Christmas we may recall the picture perfect scenes of family, friends, and gifts. Our memory may wander further back to Tiny Tim and the Ghost of Christmas Past. We may take another step back to St. Nicolas and his generosity. We may even wander all the way back to dirty stable and a child.

But the story is even older then that.

To understand the story of Advent we need to rewind all the back to the very beginning. This story starts all the back.

Join us this Advent season as we explore and explain the story from the very beginning to the very end. Join us for 10:30 in December for Come Thou Long Expected Jesus.

Into Eternity
Sun, Dec 31, 2017
And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” Revelation 21:5 (ESV) Only 360 shopping days left until Christmas. Wait!?! What!?! We just made it through another holiday season. We can't start talking about the next one. We are still in our holiday haze. We have to have a little time to recover, right? Often when we get by Christmas we feel like it was fun, but it's time to move on. Pull down the tree. Stash the lights. Turn off the Christmas music. If we truly understand the story of Advent, there are some things we can't put away. The child we celebrate in Advent didn't just arrive. He lived, died, rose again, and ascended to heaven and now we await another Advent, but this one will be different. How? This week we finish the Advent story, not by looking back but by looking ahead. Take a few minutes to read through Revelation 21-22 to get a small preview of what is to come.
