Let it Snow The 2016 Advent Series at Gastonia First Wesleyan Church.

Welcome to our 2016 Christmas series. 

The series is called Let It Snow. 

Today's Message:  
Part 1   The Forecast

I have to say that it’s a little weird kicking off a series called Let It Snow on a day when it’s supposed to be 59 degrees outside. But what are you going to do?

For some of you, the forecast today is awesome because you HATE snow. For others of you, you’re dying for a big snow because we haven’t had one in a couple of years. You LOVE snow.

But in this series, we’re all going to come together. Snow people and  non-snow people…we’re all going to be able to agree. When it comes   to the snow that we’re talking about in this series, it’s a good thing. It’s a great thing. It’s a God thing. In fact, we’re all going to be praying, “God, let it snow!”

This series is going to run through Christmas Day when we gather this last Sunday of December. And all four messages in the series are based on one verse in the Old Testament book of Isaiah.

In Isaiah 1, the prophet Isaiah wrote:  “Come now, let’s settle this,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool.”                                                                           Isaiah 1:18, NLT
