Advent Mission Study

Online class

For many of us, Advent is the launching pad to Christmas morning, a 24-day countdown to stockings and presents. We don’t think about Advent as first being about the second coming. After all, it’s been millennia since Christ was born, crucified, rose from the dead, ascended into heaven and sent the Holy Spirit. And for thousand years, we’ve been living somewhere between forgetting about or fretting over his return. 

John 3:16-17 gives us Christ’s mission: “For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God did not send his Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it” (1996 NLT). 

Jesus’ silent-night arrival in the manger is the first part of that mission. His trumpet-blasting arrival in the clouds is the last part. Taking the seasons together, Omar Rikabi shows how preparing for this kind of Advent before we celebrate Christmas is how we get in on God’s rescue mission. 

Choose from Sunday, Monday or Tuesday evening classes. 

  • Sundays, Nov. 29-Dec 20, 6:30-7:30 p.m.

Please note: If you are in a Sunday morning small group that is participating in the Advent study, this class will cover the same material.

The Apostles’ Creed

Online class

“I believe in God the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth…” So begins the Apostles’ Creed. For centuries, the Apostles’ Creed (so-called because it was believed to have been composed by the Apostles, with each of the 12 contributing 1 of the articles) has served as a summary of the Gospel and a proclamation of faith. Whether you are just dipping your toes into Christianity or whether your submersion into the faith occurred long ago, there is something in this class for you.

The Apostles’ Creed 

  • Dates: Wednesdays, Dec. 2-23
  • Time: 7-8 p.m.
  • Facilitator: Wes Maston
  • Registration deadline: Dec. 3
