Jesse Tree Explanation
We need some good news. 2020 has been a year of waiting: waiting for updates, waiting for groceries, waiting for a vaccine, waiting for life to go back to “normal.” The good news is Hope came 2000 years ago as a baby to weary, watching, and waiting ones. In the season of Advent, we are reminded to be watchful and to be ready, because the One we have been waiting for is coming again in glory for all of us who are weary, watching, and waiting. You are invited to join us as we reflect and wait together! One way of reflecting on the Messiah’s coming is through a study of the Jesse Tree scriptures which focus on twenty-five of the people, prophecies, and stories leading to the coming of Jesus Christ—a picture of His family tree. Click below for an Advent Devotional guide that will lead you through the Jesse Tree scriptures from December 1 through 25. Each entry includes a brief scripture reading, an original devotional thought, a coloring page, and space for your personal reflections. Included in the back are printable color ornaments created by Ann Voskamp for you to print and use to make your own Jesse Tree beginning on December 1. The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today! (Luke 2:11) Access the devotional guide here: bit.ly/AMChurchAdvent

Sunday Bible Class - April 19 - Managing Stress Part One
Earlier this year, we began a series on the Shalom (peace) of God. As part of our series, we took a few weeks to focus on various threats to Shalom. One of those threats is stress. Who knew how timely this lesson would be in the midst of COVID-19? We pray this lesson not only helps alleviate some of the stress you may be experiencing, but that is also helps draw you closer to God and those you love.
