Advent/Christmas Worship Series “Faithful: Christmas Through the Eyes of Joseph” by Adam Hamilton

November 27, 2018 by

christmas through Joseph

“From his beginnings as a humble carpenter to his all-important role as the earthly father of Jesus Christ, Joseph’s place in the Nativity story is sometimes overlooked but contains valuable lessons for all of us. His courage actions were crucial to the birth of Christ and God’s salvation plan for humanity. During this sermon series and small group, you will realize that Joseph’s story is much like our own. In life, we encounter circumstances that we would never have chosen for ourselves. At times it can be tempting just to walk away. Joseph provides us a great example of humbly obeying God even when we don’t understand and faithfully moving forward in the strength that God provides. Exchange your doubt for courage this Advent and Christmas season. The story of Joseph provide us a great example of humbly obeying God even when we don’t understand and faithfully moving forward in the strength that God provides.”

New Small Group Study for Lent Starts March 4- Max Lucando’s He Chose the Nails

March 2, 2018 by

nails“Every gift from God reveals His love, but no gift reveals His love more than the gifts of the cross.” These gifts came not wrapped in paper but in passion. They were not placed around a tree but a cross. They were not covered with ribbons but sprinkled with the blood that Christ shed on our behalf.
In this 5-session video Bible study, we will explore the many gifts that Christ provided to us at his crucifixion. If you would like to order a book, please contact Pastor Dan. This Group Study will take place in the Education Building of Kenwood United Methodist Church at 11:00. The Study begins at 11:00.
