The Journey - December 6-8
The Journey actually begins in the Bethlehem marketplace where guests will see several different shops and shoppers, speak to some of the shopkeepers, and witness the tax collectors – all as they are guided by a family trying to find these visitors housing for the night. Along the way will be Roman Soldiers, scribes, shepherds, angels, wise men, the innkeeper, and of course, Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus. Guides will help explain what they are going to see and experience at each stop and how it all ties together. One of the highlights is always the live animals, especially the camels! It takes hundreds of us to make The Journey happen. Signup sheets are at the Welcome Desk! If you have any questions, please contact Jeannie at the church office or email@example.com.

God did not design us to go through life alone. He designed us to be in relationship with one another. Life Groups are the best way to help you go from just attending a service to connecting with others and developing a deeper relationship with Christ. Sign up to join a Life Group by filling out the card in Sunday's bulletin and dropping it in the offering plate or head to fccbrazil.org and sign up on the Life Groups page.
