Christmas Gifts That Won't Break
A church wide Advent study that explores how the gifts of the Advent season have a permanence that speaks to generations past, present, and future
What are the Christmas gifts that won't break? They are those gifts that cannot be lost, that never go out of style, and that are independent of the chances and changes of life. They are the gifts that have been graciously given by God.
This church wide Advent study focuses on four of those gifts that also coincide with the four outer candles of the traditional Advent wreath: hope, love, joy, and peace.
As participants go through this 4-session study, they will receive from God and pass onto others the Christmas gifts that won't break.
