TEACHING

Nov. 29:  ADVENT 2020: PROMISES KEPT, PART 1: ABRAHAM: ALL THE STARS IN THE SKY. This Sunday begins the Advent season. Advent means: “the arrival of a notable person or event.” It is the four weeks preceding Christmas in which Christians remember Jesus’ arrival as a baby and anticipate his promised return as King. With Jesus’ birth, God delivered hope, love, joy and peace to a waiting world. After all, in a world of broken promises, we’re all waiting for something. This Sunday, we look at Abraham – the first of four moments in Old Testament History in which God pointed towards His coming promise.
