A CTS Advent & Christmas Sermon Series:   “A Christmas Carol”

…based on God’s Word and film versions of C. Dicken’s A Christmas Carol

Each week we use a different movie version to follow one of the spirits of Dickens’ story and see how each helped Scrooge face reality. Then we will allow that scene to lead us to God’s reality as He enters our world at Christmas enabling us to face our true selves and the transformation offered in His Son.
