Advent Study – “Christmas Is Not Your Birthday”

Sign Up Here to participate in this study being led by Rev. Dr. Denny Coon.

The stores have already set out their Christmas merchandise so let the church begin thinking of Christmas as well. I’m offering an Advent study this year which will begin on Sunday, November 20 at 8:30 AM and continue through Sunday, December 18. For five short lessons the class will read and study the book, Christmas Is Not Your Birthday, Experience the Joy of Living and Giving Like Jesus by Rev. Mike Slaughter.

Pastor Mike was the lead pastor at Ginghamsburg United Methodist Church in Tipp City, Ohio for many years. His book helps Christians refocus their time, energy, and resources for Christmas. The book will help us experience the peace of knowing that God is truly with us and understand what sacrificial giving is all about.

Here are a couple of questions Pastor Mike raises to help us explore our faith during this time of the year: How does Mary’s experience of the first Christmas influence the way you approach the holiday season? How would your view of life change if you completely trusted in God’s promises to bring good out of bad, raise up the lowly and to comfort the afflicted?

Let’s study together this year and see how the Holy Spirit can lead us to new understandings of Jesus birth and how his birth impacts our lives. The cost of the book is $10.00. Child care will be provided
