An Indescribable Gift ~ Fun stories that we can all relate to. But let’s make a few observations about the Christmas season based on these common everyday situations. Each story has a lesson.

If Jesus Had Never Been Born ~ Years ago, a book called If, or History Rewritten asked a number of intriguing questions, such as: What if the Moors had won in Spain? What if Louis XVI had been a strong, firm king? What if Lee had won at Gettysburg? What if Booth had missed Lincoln? But an even more important question is: What if Jesus had never been born?

5 Big Messages of the Nativity ~ From the prophesies recorded thousands of years before he came, to the incredible things that occurred when he arrived, Jesus’ birth was surrounded by the astonishing. God used these amazing events to communicate that Jesus Christ was the promised Messiah who would be the Savior of the world.

Songs of Advent Handout ~ Most of us love to sing Christmas songs, since we only get to do it once a year (unless you work in a department store that plays Christmas music). As familiar as we are with the songs of Christmas, there are four songs we may not be familiar with that celebrate the birth of Jesus.
