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.

Tim Spanburg - May 14, 2017

03 Vainglory | Humility

Vices and Virtues - Shawnee Mission Campus

Luke 1:26-56

From Series: "Vices and Virtues - Shawnee Mission Campus"

What steals joy, impedes spiritual growth, ruins relationships, brings entire civilizations down, and can be found in each of us? The answer is vice — sinful habits of mind and body that characterize life without God. In church history, descriptions of the allure and danger of vice abound. This includes the attempt to list the most central vices — the seven deadly sins. In Scripture, too, the vices are taken seriously, warned against, and condemned as deceitful and destructive. But how do we escape from these vices? We find in the writings of both ancient and modern philosophers, in church history down through the centuries, and, most importantly, throughout the entirety of Scripture, that we escape vice by growing in virtue - healthy habits of mind and body that characterize life with God. Join us for Vices and Virtues as we walk through the Scriptures to consider how to escape the dangerous allure of the vices and how to grow in the divine vibrancy of the virtues.

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.
