A Season of Generosity
Do you struggle to find the Holy in the Holidays? Do you love Christmas but wish that there was a better way to focus on the reason for the season rather than the struggle to compete with society's version of a consumerism Christmas? Associate Pastor Stephanie Seth will be leading a study using Jen Hatmaker's book, "7 Days of Christmas: A Season of Generosity". The group will explore how to bring the Holy back to Christmas while remembering our call to be generous. Join the study on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. as part of our Wednesday Nights Downtown programming.
