Abba’s House is hosting a month full of Christmas at the Movies. Lead Pastor Dr. Ronnie Phillips will draw some practical biblical principles from these films to share during the Sunday morning services at the Hixson and online campuses.
About the services:
Dec. 6 – Drawn from The Polar Express, just as the boy and children questioned their belief in Santa Claus, we, too, have questioned our belief in Jesus at times. As we look at the life of the Virgin Mary and the choice she made to believe, we’ll learn to believe in God who is always in control.
Dec. 13 – Folks will be whisked away by the scene from the 1954 movie White Christmas. The Army buddies from the 151st Division, along a pair of sisters, find themselves performing to help former Commander Major General Waverly save his lodge. You will be serenated by classic songs and reminded of “hope”. Pastor Emeritus Dr. Ron Phillips will teach the fact that Christmas brings Hope, and it began over 2000 years ago in the form of the baby in the manger.
Dec. 20 -Christmas at the Movies at Abba’s House becomes a place filled with the smell of pizza and the sounds of Christmas filling the halls from the Adult Choir and Orchestra. The star of the movie Home Alone, Kevin McAllister, claims to live on the most uneventful street until thieves try to break in. Pastor Ronnie Phillips will remind us that with Immanuel, meaning “God with us”, we are never alone, even in the midst of isolation.
Dec. 27 – Wrap up the ode to Christmas at the Movies with the hilarious film Elf. In this movie, Buddy finds out that he was not born an elf and travels to New York City during Christmas to find his real dad. When he arrives, everyone thinks he is weird. Guess what? If we are living for Jesus, we too, seem weird to our friends, family and co-workers. Pastor Ronnie will explain from God’s Word how we relate to our culture as “strangers in a foreign land”. Sounds of Country Christian artist Michael Lee, and be privy to an enlightening conversation between Duddy, the own Abba’s House elf, and his dad.
