Rejoice! Advent Study Group

Would you like a more peaceful, joyful, and meaningful Advent?



What does God want this Advent?

Simple. He wants you. He want a personal encounter with you. This year, as we journey through Advent with Rejoice! Finding Your Place in the Advent Story, we'll learn about the places, people, and events that shaped the story of the very first Advent and shape our own lives today. Beginning the first week of Advent, St. Ann's will be offer small group study options using the "Rejoice!: Finding Your Place in the Advent Story" journal book. Together with the guided meditation videos, this journal will help you to see the how the people, places, and events of the first Advent affected Jesus's story. You will take time to look at the people, places, and events in your own life, to see how the Lord is shaping your story, today.

I have two additional copies of the book available. Email Patti Kamper to claim your copy. If we run out, you can order your own copy of Rejoice! here and you can still join one of our study groups. Rejoice! will help you open your heart to the peace and joy of the Advent season as you prepare for the coming of Jesus this Christmas. We look forward to journeying with you!
