Advent Growth Group Studies

Prepare your heart for the Advent season in community with others. This four week study will go through Max Lucado’s Because of Bethlehem ($11).

Max Lucado explores how the One who made everything chose to make himself nothing for us. Because of Bethlehem, we no longer have marks on our record… just grace. We have the promise that God is always near us, always for us, always within us—and that we have a friend and Savior in heaven. Long after the guests have left, the carolers have gone home, and the lights have come down, these promises endure.

Four sessions are available:

  • Thursdays at 9:30 am at the Melrose Campus starting November 15. Sign up here.

  • Tuesdays at 1 pm at the Melrose Campus starting November 27. Sign up here.

Have you ever faced the Christmas season with dread? Is it possible that “the most wonderful time of the year” is not really that “wonderful” for some? When Christmas Hurts is a four week study beginning Monday, November 19 at the Greenwood Fellowship House that will offer support and the space to navigate the Advent season when we find it hard to embrace. $5.
