Wednesdays at 12:00 p.m.

December 6, 13, & 20

Join Pastor Shawn, for a 4 week Advent Study.

Together we will read and discuss Heaven and Earth, Advent and the Incarnation by Author Will Willimon.  Willimon is a retired United Methodist Bishop who now serves as Professor of the Practice of Christian Ministry and Director of the Doctor of Ministry program at Duke Divinity School. Prior to his election as a Bishop, Willimon was Dean of the Chapel at Duke Divinity School for twenty years. He will be speaking at Birmingham First on April 5, 2024, as the keynote speaker for our annual endowment dinner.

The story of Advent and Christmas is about a God who refuses to be trapped in eternity, a God who not only cares about us but one who will show up among us and do something with us, here and now. Are we ready for a God who brings heaven to earth, changing everything? Watch out! Get ready. God is on the way!

Take an hour, mid-week, mid-day, from wherever you are, as we use Advent to prepare ourselves for God’s arrival.

Willimon’s book may be purchased online through Abingdon Press or Amazon. Copies of Heaven and Earth will be available in the Circuit Rider Bookstore!

You will be sent a Zoom link via email prior to the first meeting.
