Christmas

Behold: Advent in Isaiah

Isaiah says God gave us “a sign.” Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call his name Immanuel. Let’s focus our hearts, minds, and schedule on experiencing the full joy and wonder of the season. 

 

With Jesus in the center of our hearts and vision, Christmas can be a time to richly connect with God and the people He has placed in our lives. You are invited to behold God’s love, behold the gift of heaven, behold Jesus!

Christmas Eve
Candlelight Communion

Let us join together as family and friends on Christmas Eve, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., for a time of song, reflection and rejoicing together in promises fulfilled.

We will gather for special music, time in God's Word together, communion and a candlelighting celebration.

Childcare will not be provided so families can enjoy this evening together.

Advent: A Season of Hope

The great proclamation “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us” (John 1: 14) assures us that God has entered into human history through the incarnation of the Son. The season of Advent, a season of waiting, is designed to cultivate our awareness of God’s actions— past, present, and future.

In Advent we hear the prophecies of the Messiah’s coming as addressed to us— people who wait for the second coming. In Advent we heighten our anticipation for the ultimate fulfillment of all Old Testament promises, when the wolf will lie down with the lamb, death will be swallowed up, and every tear will be wiped away. In this way Advent highlights for us the larger story of God’s redemptive plan.

We've also developed a series of posts helping us to better understand What Advent IsWhat is Involved in the Celebration as a church, and Why Metro Life Church is Celebrating Advent this holiday season.
