The First Songs of Christmas
Songs have such power to convey meaning and evoke emotion. Christmas music is no exception.

Whether they cause you to feel jolly or jaded, these seasonal songs of celebration impact us. We want to experience the wonder and glory of God’s entrance into our world through The First Songs of Christmas. We’re not talking about the tunes we hear at the mall. This advent season we will see the story of Christ’s birth through the songs that are sung in the opening chapters of Luke’s gospel. 

Let’s listen together and discover the glorious truth that Jesus is the song our hearts long to sing.

01 A Story Worth Living

A Story Worth Living - Shawnee Mission Campus

Genesis 1:1-25

From Series: "A Story Worth Living - Shawnee Mission Campus"

Your life is a story. It’s a cheesy line, but it’s true. It is why we watch so many movies, binge watch shows on Netflix, listen to podcasts telling the stories of people we have never met. Human life is a story, and we are living it. So, what story are you living? Every day we answer that question. We make decisions every day, some small and some life-altering, that show the story we believe we are living. We have assumptions, things we believe to be true that lead us to make the decisions we make. Those assumptions are why you are in your current job. Why you have not gotten married, or did. The story you think you are living explains why you have made the choices you have made - both the choices you would make again - and the ones that keep you up at night. But have you ever stepped back, and asked, what story do I think I am living? Is it the best story? Is there a better story?

Conversation Starters

Conversation Starters are one way we at Christ Community seek to dig deeper into the current sermon and biblical text. They are available during community group sessions.

There are two easy ways to locate
Conversation Starters:

1)  Weekly Update emails, delivered to your personal email every Saturday morning, will always contain a link to Sermon Notes, and Conversation Starters (when available);

or

2) Use the Sermon Locator to select your sermon by campus, speaker and date. Below the title graphic select the link for EXTRAS. Sermon Notes, and Conversation Starters are located under EXTRAS.

NOTE: If EXTRAS does not exist, there are no Sermon Notes or Conversation Starters for that sermon.
