Awaiting the Already

By Magrey R. daVega. Take a tour through the Gospel narratives and the different perspectives of each Gospel writer inviting us to encounter a fresh experience of the birth of Christ. 

Finding Bethlehem in the Midst of Bedlam

By James W. Moore. In the midst of confusion and turmoil in Bethlehem, God broke through and Jesus was born. Explore how God can still be heard over our human noise.

Sent: Delivering the Gift of Hope

By Jorge Acevedo. God sent Christ into the world as our Savior. That’s what Christmas is all about. In turn, Christ sends us into the world. But do we really understand how, where, and why we are sent? Discover what it means to be Christ’s hands, feet, head, and heart.

Three Gifts, One Christ

By Katie Z. Dawson. Explore three of Christ’s roles—Jesus comes as the high priest who sacrifices himself for us, the prophet who calls us into the Kingdom and shows us a better way to live, and the Messiah who triumphs over evil and sets us free. We think of the magi's gifts, but it is what Jesus gifts us that is the heart of the mater.

Under Wraps: The Gift We Never Expected

By Andy Nixon, Ed Robb, Jessica LaGrone, Rob Renfroe. Explore the character of God described in the Old Testament and then revealed through Jesus Christ. Each week centers on a key word that describes a characteristic of God that is evidenced in the Old Testament and then seen more clearly through Jesus: faithful, dangerous, expectant and jealous.

Women of Christmas

By Liz Curtis Higgs. Explore the biblical stories of Elizabeth, Mary, and Anna - three women whose hearts belong to God. Follow in their footsteps, and prepare for the Savior to enter your heart, your mind, and your life.
