The Christmas season is magical! From the decorations on Main Street USA to the Christmas tree in the living room, Christmas season has the power to turn everyone into an awestruck child. But why does that wonder tend to fade on January 2nd when the decorations go back into the box? It is because the deeper understanding of the season gets overlooked. Advent is a Latin word that means, 'Coming.' It speaks of a time of preparation for the coming of Messiah into our fallen world on a rescue mission for us. He is the gift that does not fade in January when snow and grey skies are all that is left of winter. Jesus is with us every day and night overcoming our fears, guilt, and failings. Come join us Sunday morning at 10:30 in Murphy Jr. High to hear about the greatest gift - Jesus!
