Sometimes we miss the meaning of Christmas, don't we? It's easy to get wrapped up in the drama, anxiety, and gift-giving (pun intended) of the season while completely missing the reason for the season - Jesus the Christ! That's why this year we need to celebrate Christmas without compromise. Join us for this 4 week-long Advent message series. Together we will study Scripture and identify those subtle but dangerous concessions we often make this time of year that distract us from following Jesus. Grab a Bible, open your heart, and let's renew and reaffirm our faith together.

Advent, 2020

The Thrill Of Hope, The Weary
World Rejoices!

Rev. Kayla Fik

As Kayla mentioned at the close of her sermon, here are a few resources as you consider rejoicing in this weary world, looking for the thrill of hope.

- Blue Christmas/Longest Night – Faith RCA, Pastors Marcia & Jonathan

- If you have a hymnal at home – read the lyrics of advent & Christmas hymns. Many of them aren’t all “rejoicing” – they sing of the weary, the hope and the rejoicing. Look for all three movements in the various verses. Or look them on YouTube and give them another listen! Here are two to start with:

- O Holy Night –

- “I heard the bells on Christmas Day” – an example of “how do we celebrate in such times?” Written in the era of the Civil War in the USA

And more about the song -
