Two studies are offered as we journey through Advent

Go from “Bah, Humbug!” to a Blessed Advent and Merry Christmas

Ebenezer Scrooge is a man in dire need of a second chance. Is redemption possible for such a greedy, dark and sad character? “The Redemption of Scrooge,” from Matt Rawle’s The Pop in Culture Series, shows us how the teachings of Jesus can be found in Dickens’ Christmas classic. From the ghosts of Christmas past, to the Life of the present, and the resurrection of Christmas future, this Advent study will “bless us every one” and reinvigorate our spiritual journeys as we look at this familiar story through the lens of faith.

Four-week study on Mondays, November 30 – December 21, from 12 to 1 p.m.

Buy your book from your preferred store, read the first chapter and join us on November 30 for a fun journey into Advent. You can register here for meeting either virtually, through Zoom, or in person in the Fellowship Hall, room A-40. Contact Rev. Allyson Lawrence at alawrence@fayettevillefirst.com with questions.

The Seekers reading group begins December 3

Are you looking for answers to some of life’s hardest questions? Do you wonder what can be done to deal with some of our most difficult problems? Come join The Seekers reading group!

Three-week study on Thursdays from December 3 to 17 from 10 a.m. to noon.

As God’s people we know we are supposed to be set apart. But this is the world we live in, and we must be Christ’s hands and feet in the middle of brokenness. We’re calling this group The Seekers because we will read and discuss a variety of books to help us understand how we might be in community with each other while listening for God in these resources. Come check out The Seekers through a short Advent study based on Barbara Brown Taylor’s book “Home by Another Way.” This three-week study on Thursdays from 10 to noon December 3 – 17 will be held as a hybrid class: in-person in the Fellowship Hall and concurrently through Zoom.
