So as we anticipate Jesus' 2nd arrival we look into the rearview mirror of history and remember his 1st arrival. That's the season we are in right now. We are preparing as we remember.
We believe that God wants us to prepare during this season intentionally. As a church community, we believe that one of the best habits to create to adjust is showing kindness. A couple of weeks ago as we prepare for this season, we gave each family unit an envelope. Inside this envelope was a set amount of money. We asked families to add at least $5 to whatever was in the envelope and show kindness to someone using that envelope. It's been enjoyable to hear the stories of how God is working through our people and those envelopes to share kindness.
We also created a Christmas in the 'Ville Framily Guide. This document is a resource we want our people to use to create some intentional memories as a group of friends or as a family.
As we prepare this season, music is crucial for us. We created an Advent Spotify playlist for you to listen to on your own. Enjoy.
Remember this is all to help us remember Jesus' first arrival as we look forward to His second arrival that is to come. His prior arrival brought hope and a glimpse of what is to be. His second arrival will be the completion of that hope that glimpse.
WHy a blog?
RE.THINK Church values being a church that is casual. Casual Church goes far beyond the way we dress, it's more about we expect people to take this journey at their own pace. We are here to journey with everyone. So we've created a blog so people can check us out before they show up for a service.
