Special Event - Advent: Lesson 1


Today was the first Sunday in Advent, and Mark taught the first of four lessons before Christmas. Mark first explained the histories of marking time around the world and how it affected the church regarding holy day observances. He then transitioned to 3 focus areas for Advent that infuse joy and faith:  

  1. Arrival in Bethlehem: God has plans.
  2. Arrival of Christ in our life.
  3. The arrival of Jesus again.
  God has perfect timing, and believers are to rely only on God as we 1) live with purpose, 2) serve and pray, and 3) demonstrate faith over fear.   Listen to Mark explore the beginning of the Advent season and God’s purpose for us since the beginning of time.


Speaker: Mark Lanier
