“Who Needs Christmas?” by Andy Stanley
The details of the Christmas story can seem unbelievable. So now, thousands of years after shepherds watched their flocks and wise men followed a star, you may be asking, “Who needs Christmas?”
Well, as it turns out, we all do. In this 3-part series, Andy Stanley shows us that the world needed Christmas, God needed Christmas, and we still need Christmas—but maybe not for the reason you think.
Seekers class, Sundays at 10:00 am
“A Christmas Carol: Book and Bible Study Guide”
In the Charles Dickens classic “A Christmas Carol“, the reclusive curmudgeon, Ebenezer Scrooge is visited on Christmas Eve by four spirits who force him to examine his selfish ways. When Scrooge awakens on Christmas morning, he is a new man, flinging open the windows of spiritual transformation and given to an entirely new outlook on life.
A Christmas Carol Book and Bible Study Guide includes the entire book of this Dickens classic as well as Bible study discussion questions for each chapter, scripture references, and related commentary. Detailed character sketches and an easy to read book summary provide deep insights into each character while examining the book’s themes of greed, isolation, guilt, blame, compassion, generosity, transformation, forgiveness and finally redemption. This Christmas, allow the transformational story of Ebenezer Scrooge to transform your life while inspiring change in the lives of those around you.
For information on how to order a book and participate in the discussion starting November 29, email Anthony Caronna, firstname.lastname@example.org.

“Advent” by Matt Chandler
The King is coming. Jesus Christ has come and will come again. This is the hope of the Church whom He purchased with His blood. It is the eager expectation and desire of His people. His coming is our joy, for He is our treasure, our greatest good. Enjoy the Advent season and learn about the hope of the Gospel!

“Everyday Advent” by Brenda Drost
Advent is a time to remember and reflect, but it’s also a time of looking forward with hope and anticipation. We remember the significance of the arrival of baby Jesus, and we look forward with great anticipation to his coming return. But the greatest hope of all is that Jesus is fully present and being revealed in a deeper way in our hearts every day.
The Everyday Advent is a 4-week devotional study that will help us refocus on our personal relationship with Jesus, and heighten our sense of expectancy to see his promises fulfilled in our everyday lives.
