Come Thou Long Expected Jesus

Come Thou Long Expected Jesus
Nov 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.

In The Garden
Sun, Nov 26, 2017
Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned—for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law. - Romans 5:12–13 (ESV) Christmas time is nostalgic. We pull out decorations from years gone by. We listen to music from people and genres from years ago. We eat those secret family recipes. We rehearse memories of days gone by. One of the anchors of this nostalgia is the story of Christmas. We think back to shepherds, mangers, and a child, but in fact the story of Advent is much, much older than we usually think. This Advent season we will look back, way back. We will consider the full story of Advent that points much farther then most think. This week we will look back to the very beginning, not just to Mary, Joseph, or even John the Baptist, but back to the very beginning, the beginning of everything. In this beginning we will discover why Advent was even necessary. This is a great time to invite a friend to join you.
