ADVENT CONSPIRACY It is hard to believe we are just weeks away from Christmas. The four weeks preceding Christmas is called "Advent" which literally means, "coming." Christmas was intended to be a Christian cegebrafion remembering the "coming of Jesus Christ." For years Christmas was a time of reflecting upon God's gift to the world (Jesus). But something happened. Christmas has turned hato a commercialized achem~ ,:te~i~-~aod to get people to buy stuff rather than celebrate the birth of the world's Savior. Fellowship Community Church, Norwalk United Methodist Church and Crossroads Church are, excited ! to be part of,presenting a message series called dvent Conspiracy,' which has the goal of reclaiming the true i meaning of Christmas. i These churches will simultaneously be studying me same four themes throughout the season of advent: worship full spend less, give more and love all. Why not visit one of these ministries and be a part of redaim- ing the true meaning of Christmas.
