Ever felt like you didn't belong? Humans are good at slotting insiders and outsiders - but the Christmas story reminds us of God's much bigger picture. Heaven intersects with a diverse trio of Magi, and it's a sign from the Divine that EVERYBODY'S IN.

Join us this weekend for an incredible Advent experience of the sights and sounds of Christmas - expect a spark of the miraculous!

REFOCUS QUESTIONS...


Ever felt like you didn’t belong? Humans are good at slotting insiders and outsiders - but the Christmas story reminds us of God’s much bigger picture. Heaven intersects with a diverse trio of Magi and it’s a sign from the Divine that EVERYBODY’S IN.

LOVE COLLISION: Everybody In

MONDAY: Genesis 31
Joseph was left out from his brothers. He just didn’t fit. Have you ever felt that way?

TUESDAY: Matthew 1:1-17, Galatians 3:28
Jesus’ genealogy is all inclusive, with saints, sinners, nationalities and more. What do you see in these verses? How do you think God is speaking to us in this?

WEDNESDAY: Matthew 28:18-20
What did Jesus mean by “all” in this statement? What does that “all” mean to you specifically?

THURSDAY: John 3:16
Do you believe this to be true? Have you accepted this truth in your heart?

FRIDAY: Matthew 2:1-12
Why do you think God chose the Magi? Why did God include people who were so different from the Hebrew people?

SATURDAY: Matthew 9:9-12
The Pharisees believed Jesus was eating with the wrong people. Do you have a people group to which you “don’t belong”? Would Jesus be eating with them? Why or why not?

SUNDAY: James 2:1-8
Whom is God nudging you to offer a seat to? Take that next step and reach out to him or her.
