Worship Preaching Series Name: A Geography of Salvation       

Date Range: December 1 – December 24, 2019

Theme: The path to Bethlehem with landmarks from the book of Isaiah.

Series Overview: The Scriptures that help us prepare for the birth of Jesus Christ are filled with places – holy places, hard places, and the pathways in between.  Together, these places present a “geography of salvation” – a map of the heights and depths our God will go to bring us home.  Throughout the weeks of Advent, we will “visit” some of these sacred places.  Along the way we’ll learn that we can meet God on the mountaintop – but that God also draws near to wherever it is we find ourselves.
