The Journey

Walking the Road to Bethlehem


We are planning to offer the program “The Journey:  Walking the Road to  Bethlehem,” based on the writings of Adam Hamilton, kicking off November 27.

In this program, Adam Hamilton travels with us from Nazareth to    Bethlehem in a fascinating look at the birth of Jesus Christ.  Using      historical information, archaeological findings, and personal reflections, Hamilton illuminates this most amazing moment in history.  We follow the footsteps of Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, and others, gaining     insight into our own journeys with Christ.

The study consists of the following resources:

· The Journey:  Walking the Road to Bethlehem, a book by  Adam Hamilton

· The Journey:  A Season of Reflections, a devotional book

· The Journey:  DVD with Leader Guide, with five sessions filmed in the Holy Land, plus a 64-page leader guide


As part of this program, our church will be offering a five-week study for adults, youth, and children during our Sunday school class time at 10:00 am. Sermons and worship will also reflect the same message.  Here are the session topics:

1. Mary of Nazareth

2. Joseph of Bethlehem

3. Mary’s Visit to Elizabeth

4. From Nazareth to Bethlehem

5. The Manger
