advent-booklet-back-cover-window-01Wednesday Night Live

On December 7 we will be continuing two different sessions for adults: Advent Bible Study: The focus of our study is Jesus’ family tree. Looking at the genealogy of Matthew we will look at some of the characters found there and discuss their significance and place in the unfolding story of God’s grace and redemption. Mission Project for Restoration Church: Restoration Church is a new Swahili speaking church starting in North Raleigh. We would like to support this group of believers as they take on the task of developing a faith community. We will be making a Christmas ornament for each family in the church. Our hope that this gesture of friendship would be an encouragement and a sign of the power of Christ’s love in this season. No expertise is required. Bring your scissors and a bit of holiday cheer.

Living Nativity

Tuesday, December 20 & Wednesday, December 21 | 6:45 And 7:30 Pm

The Living Nativity Team asks you to consider volunteering to help with our annual Living Nativity presentation. The time you spend “acting” in one of our four shows (December 20 and 21, 6:45 and 7:30) can be a reflective time of peace and meditation in a chaotic holiday season. You can sign up to serve as a greeter, server, or candy cane distributor. Contact Jamie Mabe with any questions, grebjam@gmail.com. Thank you, The Living Nativity Team
