Faithful

Galilee’s Advent worship series, Faithful, tells the story of Christmas from the point of view of Joseph, the husband of Mary.

Join us as we examine this divine story through very human eyes.

  • Dec 3 – “Just an Average Joe” Matthew 13:54-56
  • Dec 10 – “Whose Child is This?” Matthew 1:18-19
  • Dec 17 – “Raising a Child Not Your Own” Matthew 1:18-21
  • Dec 24 – “The Journey to Bethlehem” Luke 2:1-5
  • Dec 31 – “The Rest of the Story”

Faithful is a worship series based on the book by Adam Hamilton.

“In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world.  (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.)  And everyone went to their own town to register. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David….”
