Join us every Sunday morning at 10:45 a.m. for worship

 Quite often our air-brushed portrayals of the Christmas story keep us from seeing just how shocking was the way Christ came into the world. When we strip away our fantasized notions of Jesus’ birth and dare to investigate how it really happened, we discover that God came and still comes into our lives in ways we could never predict. Join us during the four Sundays of Advent as we explore:  * The Scandal of A Contaminated Bloodline  (December 2).  The King’s royal bloodline was filled with dysfunctional, questionable people, particularly the women! Why would god choose to come in this way?   * The Scandal of An Unwed Mother  (December 9).  Mary’s teen pregnancy was considered “illegitimate” in the eyes of society. Why would God choose to come in this way?   * The Scandal of An Unsanitary Arrival  (December 16).  The King was born, not in a royal palace, but a filthy stable. Why would God choose to come in this way?   * The Scandal of An Empire-Shaking Birth  (December 23).  The report of one born King of the Jews sent a power-crazed ruler over the edge in an effort to eliminate this threat to his kingdom. Why would God choose to come in this way?
