The Christmas story throughout the Bible
Faith (8 yrs old) and Charis (6 yrs old) are reading through New Hope's Christmas through the Bible reading list. This list contains many Old Testament passages that look forward to Jesus Christ's coming and what he would do. It also contains some New Testament passages that look back to Christ's coming.
After the worship service on the Sunday before Christmas, New Hope members go to Taipei's biggest park in the middle of the city -- Da An Park -- and sing Christmas carols to the crowds. As people walk by, the children hand out Christmas cookie packets. On the card is a verse about Christmas on one side and information about the church on the other side.
