POMEROY – Everyone in the community is invited to attend Mount Hermon Church for a four-week series based on the Advent themes of Hope, Love, Joy and Peace called “The Gifts of Christmas,” at 10:30 a.m.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, or so the old song goes. Yet it doesn’t always feel that way—the hectic holiday schedule, family pressures, and emotional wounds are just a few reasons. But Mount Hermon sees the Christmas season as one that offers a unique opportunity to experience God’s love and grace in the midst of real life. That is the reason for “The Gifts of Christmas” Advent Series celebration—to experience what the true gifts of Christmas mean for our lives today.
“Sometimes Christmas loses its significance because of the busyness of life. And we understand that. Our hope is that this year changes that for a lot of people.” said Adam Will, Lead Pastor.
In a season often marked by frenzied busyness, Advent is an opportunity to set aside time to prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ. The relevant messages in this series are designed to help us place our focus on a far greater story than our own—the story of God’s redeeming love for our world.
With cookies and cocoa, lighting of the Advent wreath, and a free devotional book for visitors, “The Gifts of Christmas,” this series is the perfect opportunity for families throughout the community to come together to celebrate this special season.
Mount Hermon is a United Brethren Church located at 36411 Wickham Road, Pomeroy, Ohio. For more information, visit www.mounthermonub.org or call 740-985-4220.
