A Thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn!
Hope is a word we see sprinkled throughout messages of the holiday season — on Christmas cards, coffee mugs, and candles. But what is hope, really? Optimism? Positive thinking? Blind faith? What if hope was something more than any of these: something not only thrilling, but life-changing?
In a world that feels weary and uncertain at times, A Thrill of Hope offers us a powerful understanding of God’s promised hope in the person of Jesus.
We are offering the A Thrill of Hope Advent Devotional as a resource for the whole church — adults and children. This devotional will tie in with the Sunday messages and with what the children are learning in Crossroads Kids. Pre-order yours on Sunday morning or order from Amazon (adult version) or Kid’s Version.
Join us this Advent as we journey together
toward the birth of our Savior!
Kids will follow the Advent story through the eyes of Hope, an 8-year-old girl living in Bethlehem and preparing for the guests arriving at her family’s inn. The coloring pages and Advent calendar available in the book give kids an interactive way to experience the hope of Advent this year. Each chapter includes one coloring page for your kids to color while you read the story of Hope with them.
Download the Thrill of Hope App, which will release a new video each week of Advent for kids to learn a song that they can sing long with Hope.

A coffeehouse, sometimes known as a “common house,” is a contemporary social gathering: a space for creatives and thinkers to cultivate community through inspiration and education. The audience at a coffeehouse fellowships with each other at tables over food and hot beverages.
Enjoy our Christmas program of acoustic music, vocal solos, spoken-word poetry, comedy skits, interpretive dance, and other performances that lead you to reflect on the depth and significance of Christ’s birth.
This even is for EVERYONE! This is a family-friendly event. Childcare will not be provided, but the pacing and variety of the evening will keep young ones entertained (plus, the cookies and cocoa will help!)
Bring a plate of cookies to share!
