The 18 programs in this creative and practical church program book are designed to connect God's people with God's story, from generation to generation, across the ages. Author Rachel Gilmore takes traditional Christmas stories and weaves them into the big picture of God's salvation plan. The diverse selection of worship and learning formats includes:
* Interactive worship services
* Quiet vesper services
* Special celebrations
* Faith and fellowship events
* Compelling dramas
* Intergenerational hands-on workshops
Overarching Advent themes of hope, love, joy, peace, light, and eternal life meet with lessons on responsible stewardship, freedom from sin, sharing the Good News, and giving back to God through service.
