The Christmas Thread

November 30, 2018 – December 21, 2018

The Christmas Thread

As we enjoy our Christmas celebrations, let’s not forget the reason we celebrate: “A Savior has been born to you.” Like a single thread woven through a garment, the promise of Christmas is woven through all of scripture. Did you know the Bible foreshadows the Christmas story throughout the Old Testament or that Revelation retells the Christmas story with vivid imagery? In this Groundwork Advent series, we’ll broaden our perspective on Christmas by following the thread of its promise from Genesis through the Psalms and Prophets to Revelation. Together we’ll study the Christmas story through the various lenses of the different parts of the Bible and deepen our appreciation for the immense gift of salvation, initiated when Jesus Christ was born among us.
