Christmas is always such a special time. From family to gifts to memories, Christmas is an important season for everyone. This season is even more special because of “The Giver.” Join us this Advent season as we learn about and celebrate our Giver, God, as we look at how he gave us hope, peace, joy, love, and ultimately Christ.
