Unwrapping the real meaning of Christmas.
Expectant. Dangerous. Jealous. Faithful.
These are the themes used in the Old Testament to describe the layers
of God’s character, but then Jesus—God under wraps—took on human flesh
and came to live among us to reveal to us what God is really like. Under Wraps
will show everyone in your congregation what they can find when they
open the true gift of Christmas. This Advent study works well for
individuals as well as in group classes. Small group resources including
a teaching video, worship ideas and visuals, sermon lead-in videos, and
preaching guides are provided for all ages. Additional material on the
theme of “Joy” is provided for an optional Christmas week focus.
The Worship Planning Flash Drive provides a
set of digital helps for worship planning and promotion that include
promo videos, four video vignettes to introduce each sermon, preaching
outlines, worship activity ideas, projection slides and art images, web
banners, email templates, and more.
