Join our Advent Bible Study this year starting Tuesday, November 28th and ending on Tuesday, December 19th. Classes will be offered at either 10AM or 6 PM. Sign up will be available at the welcome center and books will be $16.00. The book is Light of the World: A Beginner’s Guide to Advent by author, professor, and biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine. The book explores the biblical texts surrounding the story of the birth of Jesus. It traces the Christmas narrative through the stories of Zechariah and Elizabeth, Mary, the journey to Bethlehem, and the visit from the Magi. These stories open conversations around connections of the Gospel stories to the Old Testament, the role of women in first-century Jewish culture, the importance of Mary’s visitation and the revolutionary implications of Mary’s Magnificat, the census and the stable, and the star of Bethlehem and the flight to Egypt. Join us and prepare your heart for Christmas!
