1:00 to 5:00 PM
In The 4:12 Zone
First UMC Ansonia
Ebenezer Scrooge is a man in dire need of a second chance. Is redemption possible for such a greedy, dark, and sad character?
The Redemption of Scrooge, from Matt Rawle’s The Pop in Culture Series, shows us how the teachings of Jesus can be found in Dickens’ Christmas classic. From the ghosts of Christmas past, to the Life of the present, and the resurrection of Christmas future, this Advent Youth Day will “bless us every one” as we look at this familiar story through the lens of faith.
The Youth Study Book every one will receive interprets Scrooge, his struggles, and his redemption in a way that youth can relate to and understand, using humor, down-to-earth discussion, and examples from contemporary culture. The material we are using is geared for young people grades 5-12.
We will either have pizza or hero sandwiches to enjoy as well as snacks throughout the day and of course dessert later!.
