Advent & Christmas 2020 At CHatham

Advent is a time of remembering and rejoicing in the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, as we look forward to His coming again. We will celebrate this season leading up to Christmas together in several special ways.

Please note: All services will be available for viewing via Facebook Live. Masks and physical distancing are required for any in-person gatherings.



"MORE THAN A PROPHET" ADVENT SERMON SERIES
During this season, we'll look at the story of John the Baptist and consider how to live a life pointing to Jesus as we anticipate His coming. Join us Sundays starting December 6 at 10:30 a.m. for "More Than A Prophet: Lessons from the Life of John the Baptist."


You can find our latest message on our Sermons page.



ADVENT READING GUIDE

This year, we recommend "Good News of Great Joy" by John Piper for use as a daily reading guide. These 25 Advent meditations are available to download free as a podcast or e-book, or you may wish to purchase a physical copy. We encourage you to read through this daily guide with your family or small group.

As an alternate for those who may be previously familiar with this guide, you may wish to use "The Dawning of Indestructible Joy," which is also available for download or purchase.

And just for kids, "The Jesus Storybook Bible" has updated their free downloadable Advent kit, which includes music, coloring pages, ornaments, memory verse cards and more.



"THE JOY OF ADVENT" TUESDAY MESSAGES

We'll feature a special weekly message of joy on Facebook starting at 7 p.m. These messages will be broadcast on December 1, 8, 15 and 22.



ADVENT PRAYER NIGHTS
These prayer times will have a unique emphasis to match the season. We will meet via Zoom to pray and worship the Lord together starting at 7 p.m. on Fridays, December 4, 11 and 18. Login information will be shared on Realm.



CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE, DECEMBER 24
We are planning a special Christmas Eve service Thursday, Dec. 24 at 7 p.m.



We hope you are refreshed and encouraged during this season of joy and anticipation as we celebrate the birth of our King Jesus!
