This year, 2020, our Advent sermon series will focus on the incarnation story of Jesus Christ not only as found in Scripture but as accentuated in the classic Christmas carol, O Holy Night. We are offering this study, on-demand, so you can participate from anywhere you have access. Each week we will use one verse from the carol and pair it with one or more verses from Scripture. Pastor Damon Relder, Coker Member Richard Garrett, and Communications Director Jenn Clauser will be in discussions each week over the four topics listed below and will post a video of the discussions so you can listen in. Take the study guide and notes, ponder on them, and/or gather others to be in discussion with you! The videos and notes are (or will be) available below and will be posted weekly on our Facebook Group, please join the group to join in the discussions or e-mail your discussion questions to PastorDamon@coker.org.

The carol, “O Holy Night” lends itself to quite a number of important lessons surrounding the birth of Christ, but we will focus on four:
