Redemption: A Christmas Carol

Redemption: A Christmas Carol is a worship series based on Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas story, which begins: “Marley was dead.” Like all good stories, it doesn’t end there.

Over the four weeks of Advent and Christmas Sunday, we will explore the world of Ebenezer Scrooge, Jacob Marley, Tiny Tim and the Cratchit family. Along the way we will meet the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future to learn how living with and for others is living in a world blessed by Jesus.

Come witness the Christmas miracle, redemption, which turns “Bah! Humbug!” into “God bless us every one!”
