Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.

12.03 – 12.24

From his beginnings as a humble carpenter to his all-important role as the earthly father of Jesus Christ, Joseph’s place in the nativity story is sometimes overlooked but contains valuable lessons for all of us. Join Adam Hamilton as he examines Christmas through the eyes of Joseph. Absent from much of the biblical narrative, Joseph never spoke a word, but his courageous actions were crucial to the birth of Christ and God’s salvation plan for humanity.

As you read this book, you will understand how Joseph’s story is much like our own. In life, we encounter circumstances that we would never have chosen for ourselves. At times it can be tempting just to walk away. Joseph provides us a great example of humbly obeying God even when we don’t understand and faithfully moving forward in the strength that God provides.

Exchange your doubt for courage this Advent and Christmas season.The story of Joseph provide us a great example of humbly obeying God even when we don’t understand and faithfully moving forward in the strength that God provides.

Each class will include a short DVD segment, scripture readings and discussion.  These sessions are open to all and we encourage you to invite your friends.

Faith Group Bible Study

(Women’s Ministry) 

Faith Group meets every Wednesday afternoon from 1:00 – 2: 00 pm at the church. The purpose of our group is to study God’s word, and be able to apply it to our lives.
 
Faith Group reaches out into the community.  We send cards to people who are shut-ins, to those who are sick or may have had surgery.  Some members visit to those who are in need of company.  During the holidays we make up boxes of food and distribute to families in need. We as a group are here to serve our church family and the community in any way we can.  For questions, please feel free to contact, Barbara Petrie, 630.983.8805 or kenbarbpetrie@att.net
