Incarnation - Advent Study with Pastor Ricky Ricks

This year, while our focus is on Indescribable JOY, we invite you to join Pastor Ricky in a virtual Advent study of "Incarnation" - Rediscovering the significance of Christmas.

This study will take place over the four weeks of Advent on Thursday afternoons at 6:00 p.m.  Scroll for more information and access to zoom links and study resources.


"His parents gave him the name Jesus. But the prophets, the shepherds, the wise men, and the angels addressed him by other names. They called him Lord, Messiah, Savior, Emmanuel, Light of the World, and Word Made Flesh. In Incarnation: Rediscovering the Significance of Christmas, best-selling author Adam Hamilton examines the names of Christ used by the gospel writers, exploring the historical and personal significance of his birth. This Advent season church families will come together to remember what’s important. In the face of uncertainty and conflict, Christians reclaim the Christ child who brings us together, heals our hearts, and calls us to bring light into the darkness. Now more than ever, we invite you to reflect upon the significance of the Christ child for our lives and world today!"
