Watch and Wait

Jim Branch, Author and Director of Core Leadership

Meets in the Chapel

This will be a time of reflection, prayer, and conversation on the themes of Advent. We will also explore how to live the Christmas season in such a way that it prepares our hearts and souls for the arrival of Christ, both as individuals and as the body of Christ.


The Hidden Gift of Unwanted Holiday Emotions

Matt Avery, Pastor of Discipleship and Pastor to 20s

Meets in room B224


The Christmas season is a time when many of us grow more aware that the reality of our circumstances, relationships, and lives are not as perfect as we expected they would be. Instead of joy and hope, many experience loneliness, anger, and worry—and God invites us to be honest about that! In this class, we will explore these emotions and their God-given, redemptive purposes in our lives: revealing the truth of where we are while inviting us to deeper flourishing in Christ.
