SERMON SERIES: The Heart That Grew Three Sizes: Finding Faith in the story of the Grinch.

Dr. Seuss wrote How the Grinch Stole Christmas! To express his concerns about the commercialization of Christmas. Advent is a season for Christians that doesn’t count down the shopping days of Christmas, but prepares our hearts to receive Christ (anew). In this way, the Grinch and Advent might have enough in common to help us differentiate between the true meaning of Christmas and that which the Grinch steals from the people of Whoville.

Sunday, December 3 at 9:00 am: When Everything is Wrong
Despite its reputation as a time of joy, the Christmas season (and the Advent season leading up to it) is for many a time of turmoil. How do we work through the stress, envy, and disappointment that so often accompany our celebrations? And what can we learn from the story of the Grinch and the people of Whoville?

Monday, December 4 at 10:00 am and 7:00 pm : Advent Worship Service and Tea.
Start the season off with our Take a Walk through Bethlehem Advent Service and Tea,
Pastor Becky’s message will offer ways to make your Advent more meaningful, hopeful, and intentional.  Special music will be featured in the services and during the delicious Tea that follows both.  Invite your friends!  A free-will offering will be collected for Suicide Prevention Services. The 7:00 pm service will also be available via livestream on our website and YouTube.

Sunday, December 10 at 9:00 am: When Christmas Isn’t Christmas
The Grinch didn’t really steal Christmas. He took lights, decorations, and presents. He even took food. But he didn’t take away Christmas. Christmas, he discovered, is in the hearts and relationships of those who celebrate it. Too often we get so caught up in the pageantry of Christmas that we forget about Christ, the one whose birth we’re actually commemorating. What can the Grinch teach us about keeping our priorities straight during the Advent and Christmas seasons?

Sunday, December 17 at 9:00 am & 10:30 am: Christmas Cantata: Christmas Portraits
This year’s cantata, written by our Director of Music Scott Stevenson, is titled Christmas Portraits. The three sections – Cathedral Christmas, That Night in Bethlehem and A London Yuletide – highlight carols from different countries and languages. The cantata will feature a ten-piece chamber orchestra.

Sunday, December 24 at 9:00 am: When Light Shines
When the Grinch attempts to steal Christmas, he dresses as Santa Claus. Our traditions about Santa Claus involve accountability. He rewards well-behaved children and punishes naughty ones. As Christians, we serve a God who holds us accountable. But God doesn’t punish our misbehavior by withholding gifts. God, through Christ and the Holy Spirit and our fellow Christians, works to redeem and transform us. How do we experience the same redemption and transformation that the Grinch does at the end of Dr. Seuss’s book?
