On November 27th, we will start a new, all-church Advent study. The study is called “The Journey: Walking the Road to Bethlehem,” and it is based on the writings of Adam Hamilton, pastor of the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas.
 
In this five-week study, Adam Hamilton travels with us from Nazareth to Bethlehem in this fascinating look at the birth of Jesus Christ. Using historical information, archaeological findings, and personal reflections, Hamilton illuminates this most amazing moment in history. We follow the footsteps of Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, and others, gaining insight into our own journeys with Christ.

During our time together, we will cover:

1.    Mary of Nazareth
2.    Joseph of Bethlehem
3.    Mary’s Visit to Elizabeth
4.    From Nazareth to Bethlehem
5.    The Manger

Each week of Advent Pastor Glenn will center our Sunday morning worship around these areas. Small group questions will be provided as well for discussion throughout the week in your Lift Groups. If you would be interested in joining a Lift Group, even just for this Advent series, please contact Perry Montgomery at pmontgomery@zumc.org.
