Unwrapping the real meaning of Christmas.

Under Wraps is a churchwide Advent experience that explores four characteristics of God described in the Old Testament and then revealed perfectly and completely through Jesus. Additional material, “A Season of Joy,” is provided for a Christmas week focus.

This Worship Planning Flash Drive will give you ideas and tools for use in worship and in your congregation during the churchwide Advent program. In addition to this flash drive, the churchwide program includes resources for adults, youth, and children’s studies, as well as devotions for individual use.
