God bless us
every one

During Advent, we reflect on how God blesses each and every one of us with the ability to be transformed.  Using the Dickens' classic of the redemption of Scrooge. The cultural context of A Christmas Carol was 1800's England – a time of great divide between rich and poor.  We shed a light on how the ghosts of our past, present, and yet-to-come inform our living.

Adult Study for Advent

Ebenezer Scrooge is a man in dire need of a second chance. Is redemption possible for such a greedy, dark and sad character?  The Redemption of Scrooge, by Matt Rawle, shows us how the teachings of Jesus can be found in Dickens' Christmas classic.  From the ghosts of Christmas past, to the Life of the present, and the resurrection of Christmas future, this Advent study will "bless us every one" and reinvigorate our spiritual journeys as we look at this familiar story through the lens of faith. 

Sunday mornings Nov. 27, Dec. 4, 11, 18 at 9:00 in the Parlor.  Also Thursday evenings Dec. 8, 15 & 22 at the parsonage. 

Adults meet at 8:45 in the St. Marie Parlor many Sunday mornings during the school year to engage contemporary Christian issues and our traditions.
