This Advent, be part of a church-wide book study examining how we can not almost experience Christmas, but altogether experience Christmas.
“Almost Christmas: A Wesleyan Advent Experience” by Magrey deVega, Ingrid McIntyre, April Casperson, and Matt Rawle explores the commitment we can make to Christ during this Advent season: not being satisfied with “almost,” but striving for “altogether.” This book was inspired by a sermon given by John Wesley in 1741, titled “The Almost Christian,” in which Wesley encouraged people to follow Christ wholeheartedly, centering around the idea that we should not be satisfied with being almost Christian but rather strive towards being altogether a Christian.
At Asbury, we believe in the power of connection to each other as week seek to deepen our connection with God; and we hope you’ll connect with a small group this Advent season as we seek to be altogether love, hope, joy, and peace.
Groups meet weekly at a variety of days and times, and both in-person and virtual options are available.
This book will also serve as the basis for the Advent sermon series of the same name.
