Home: Christmas at GraceCity

Don’t miss our 2020 advent calendar and small group study guide, below.


The Christmas story is as well-known as your most beloved piece of furniture, and just as worn around the edges. It feels like HOME. This year “home” takes on a greater variety of meanings than ever before as we navigate travel restrictions and the make-up of our holiday homes. We’ll do this together at GraceCity!

This Christmas, we warmly invite you to come home in every sense of the word, and in every way possible. Home to your church family, or if you haven’t been with us before, to a church home waiting much the same way many in Bethlehem awaited Joseph – with open arms. 

And we’ll ask ourselves: “Have the years—centuries, millennia even—of our traditional understanding of this story added meanings that are not there, or perhaps worn away meanings that once were?” 

So we’ll go home to the first century AD, to the dawn Jesus’ years on Earth…to discover what we may of the culture, the circumstances, and the marvelous community surrounding him at birth. Home to as close a first-reading of the Christmas story as you’ve ever experienced.

Bring your family, your friends, your loved ones Home this Christmas.
