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:
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!

Small Group Celebration!
Join us next Friday evening, November 13, at 7pm, for dessert and coffee (and other beverages) as we celebrate the conclusion of our church-wide study and message series, “A Disciple’s Path.”
We had a great turn out at the opening celebration, and if you attended that, we’d love for you to invite a friend this time! During our time together we will have an “open-mic” time of testimony sharing regarding your experiences through small groups and diving deeper into what it means to follow the disciple’s path through our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.
We will also share information about our upcoming Advent message series and group experience entitled, “Under Wraps: The Gift We Never Expected.”
Please RSVP to Joyce Munt in the church office by Wednesday, November 11, and let us know how many folks you’ll be bringing with you!
