Welcome to Mount Zion United Methodist Church

Under Wraps—Advent Church Study Begins November 30th

Advent will start on Sunday, November 30, and we will start an exciting new Advent program, Under Wraps: The Gift We Never Expected. Prepared and piloted by The Woodlands United Methodist Church in Houston, this joyful program explores some of God’s unexpected qualities, presented over the four weeks of Advent::
• God Is Expectant
• God Is Dangerous
• God Is Jealous
• God Is Faithful
Just as the first wrapped gift beneath the Christmas tree marks the new season, so the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day signaled that God’s hope and salvation and redemption plan had come into the world. In Jesus, God gift-wrapped himself in human flesh and was born in a stable so he could come and live among us and of-fer us life and salvation that we could never gain on our own.
Under Wraps will be a church-wide activity and in-cludes special sermons and worship activities, as well as study groups and resources for adults, youth, and children.
Sign ups and books for the small group studies will begin on Sunday 11/2 during the Fellowship... More
