Some call them Wise Men, others Magi, others Kings. They were astrologers from the East who saw a special star in the skies that led them to Jerusalem. They were searching for the newborn King of the Jews to honor him.
(Read their whole story in Matthew 2:1-12!)
Starting December 3, the “Wandering Wisemen” will appear at Heritage. They have come to remind us that the road to Bethlehem and the good news of Jesus’ birth at Christmas is a journey! They will make appearances throughout Advent and Christmas on our church Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/heritagepres.
There are also sets for you to take home. Pick yours up at the church or download one here: Wandering Wisemen 2017 Download Color or decorate them as you imagine their stories. What do you think they hoped to find? What are you looking for this Advent? Each day, move them to a new space in your house, or take them with you as you celebrate the season. Take a picture and post it on our Facebook page (or e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org to be shared). How many places will they go before the reach the manger?
Then, make sure your Wondering Wisemen find their way back to worship on SUNDAY, JANUARY 7, 2018 as we celebrate Epiphany and the end of their journey!
