Advent for Everyone
How to Share the Holiday in Traditional Churches, Fresh Expressions and Everything In-Between
Thursday | November 17th | 2-3pm ET
The weeks leading up to Christmas provide an opportunity for Christians, and even our broader culture, to turn our minds to Jesus.
But how do you help Christians reimagine the holiday season that has been co-opted by secular and consumerist practices?
How do you take the concepts and traditions, many rooted in high church liturgies, to modern churches, dinner churches, home churches and other fresh expressions?
In this webinar, you’ll hear ideas that will help you experience Advent, no matter what your church looks like. It is free and perfect for church leaders longing to reach new people. You can participate live, call in or watch on-demand.
