“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas,” or, at least that’s the assumption based on that familiar holiday song, but what does that look like at your house? Most of us anticipate the great sales at the mall on the day after Thanksgiving, string lights on the outside of our house, and decorating the inside of our homes, but how are we preparing our hearts for the greatest gift we’ve ever been given?

It is a five week study beginning Nov. 19. Join us!
