Advent | A Season To Want, Hope, Wait, Receive | Sermon Series

December 3 – December 24


As we step into the season of Advent, we enter into a time of waiting.  We are getting in touch with our wants. There is a lot of stuff we might want for Christmas: an action figure, a new car, a winter coat or a ticket to a new vacation spot. From a historical perspective, Christ’s birth was anticipated for thousands of years. People’s expectations were shaped by the promises of God, “the Savior will come!”

What do we really want for Christmas?

We're sorry. The ‘audio only' stream is not available for this particular day.

Advent: A Time to Receive

December 24

This Sunday we’ll celebrate an amazing gift—the gift of Jesus coming to our world—coming to us so that everything could be made new. The Bible says that God loved the world so much that He GAVE His Son—His one and only Son. Jesus is a gift beyond our imaginations.

The question for us this Sunday is:
Will we receive this gift?

Advent: A Season to Wait

December 17

One of the most difficult things for many of us to do is to wait. Whether in the doctor’s office, a line at the store or a traffic jam that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, we don’t like to wait. It’s tough to wait for anything, but it’s really tough when we have to wait for God. We want things to change and we want them to change NOW. But that’s not the way God works. He goes at His pace. He moves at the right time. This Sunday we’ll think about waiting for God.

Advent: A Season to Hope

December 10

Last week we talked about pain and suffering in our world and how we want things to be different. This Sunday we’ll think about reasons to believe things could get better and use this time of getting ready for Christmas by growing in our hope for what God is doing.

WANT: What do you want for Christmas?
