In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world.  (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.)  And everyone went to their own town to register.  So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David.  He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.
The blessing of the season is the joy it brings in a multitude of ways.
The challenge of the season is the withdrawals of time and treasure it what they require.
As Christians, we are to keep these factors in balance, while answering living as faithful disciples. ONE OF THE CENTRAL CHARACTERISTICS WE SHARE AS BELIEVERS IS TO…EXPECT! From Mary to Joseph, Zechariah and Elizabeth, and all the other figures in the scripture, every one of them were called upon to EXPECT. For over 2000 years, the call has been for the church to EXPECT!
Times have not changed this call, but examining, embracing, and engaging this call can change everything in us and the world! Join us in this 2015 Advent Season as we offer and engage in unique worship experiences that will help you in real time and for years to come with the areas of your life, future, and eternity…examine, engage, and embrace EXPECTATION!
Using all the elements of our worship experiences, AND sermons fashioned to teach, encourage and equip you for best day living, prepare yourselves for times of worship, renewal, and life-changing experiences like you’ve never had….as we…EXPECT!
