Recap: Advent Discussion

This week we had a very interactive discussion about the 4 advent candles:
Hope, Peace, Joy and Love.

We divided into 4 teams and each team was given one of these to argue why you cannot have true hope. peace, joy or love without Christ! The other teams had to debate against the case they presented.

It was a great way to learn about the importance of each of these, this season, and our need for Christ to be in the center!

This Wednesday

We will continue our Christmas movie marathon this Wednesday night form 6-8 pm.

Please feel free to bring your favorite cereal to share as we will be doing a cereal buffet!
