November 27th – December 18th
Emmaus Classroom @ 9:00am
This study reminds us that hymns have histories: they were written by a particular people, often in response to particular circumstances in the writers’ lives. More than this, hymns teach history. By paying attention to their back stories, we learn of joys and struggles that have occupied our ancestors in the faith from biblical times to our own.
Written by well-known song writer Mary Louise Bringle, each session presents the history and relevance of hymns sung during the season of Advent.
November 27th – Lift Up Your Heads, Ye Mighty Gates
December 4th – O Splendor of God’s Glory Bright and Savior of the Nations, Come
December 11th – People, Look East
December 18th – Wake, Awake, for Night Is Flying (Sleepers, Wake! A Voice Astounds Us)
Each week, the class will read, study, pray and sing their way through these lessons as we are led forward to that time beyond time when we all will sing together before God. So come, learn about these songs, and enjoy singing your way through the Advent season.
