Rediscover the gift of Advent that comes without packages, ribbons, and bows.
We don’t know why the Grinch hated Christmas. We just know he did. In this new Advent study, Matt Rawle explores the faith themes in the Christmas classic, How the Grinch Stole Christmas! including, how did the Grinch’s heart grow three sizes come Christmas morning? How did Christmas save the Grinch? Could it be that the very thing we think we hate is the one thing that changes our lives? This Advent and Christmas season, look at a familiar classic through the lens of faith and see how Christ speaks to us through our culture.
The kit includes the book, a comprehensive Leader Guide, children and youth guides, worship resources flash drive, video sessions featuring Matt Rawle guiding participants through a four-week study on DVD, and Amplify Media congregation access pass from October 1 to December 31, 2021.
