Unwrapping God’s Greatest Gift


Advent will start on Sunday, November 29, and we will start an exciting new Advent program,“Under Wraps: The Gift We Never Expected.” Prepared and piloted by The Woodlands United Methodist Church in Houston, this joyful program explores some of God’s unexpected qualities, presented over the four weeks of Advent, plus Christmas Eve:

  1. God Is Expectant
  2. God Is Dangerous
  3. God Is Jealous
  4. God Is Faithful
  5. God is Joyful


Just as the first wrapped gift beneath the Christmas tree marks the new season, so the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day signaled that God’s hope and salvation and redemption plan had come into the world. In Jesus, God gift-wrapped himself in human flesh and was born in a stable so he could come and live among us and offer us life and salvation that we could never gain on our own.

Join us this Advent as we unwrap God’s greatest gift, our Savior Jesus!
