You can also find ways to make things easier, less worrisome, or less lonely for people in need. Listen now at kidscorner.net and check out all the new content.

Groundwork: Zechariah, Elizabeth, and John the Baptist: Preparing the Way for Jesus - Just like we prepare for Christmas, God prepared the world for salvation. Join Groundwork as we study Luke 1:5-25, 57-66 to witness how Zechariah, Elizabeth, and their son, John the Baptist, prepare the way for Jesus’ birth and allow their message to prepare our hearts again for Jesus’ second coming. Listen now at GroundworkOnline.com and subscribe to Groundwork's weekly emails for future episodes.


Faith Formation

Advent At-home Faith Formation Tip - During Advent, we light the candle of Love. Jesus’ life, ministry, death, and resurrection were all characterized by love. In return, we are to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. And love your neighbor as yourself.” Consider how your family or household might do those things more fully in the coming year. (Tip from Faith Formation; bit.ly/CRCFaithFormation)
