The season of expectancy
As we approach the Christmas season, our minds are often filled with what this time of year will bring us. Our Advent series will remind us that God's gift of His Son Jesus is the most precious gift of all. We'll be looking together at some of the encounters at the beginning of Luke's Gospel to help us prepare for Christmas by looking forward to celebrating again God entering our world with a message of hope, love and security - the very things He knows our hearts really need!
