The King Has Come: The Promise Fulfilled

Historically, the Church has referred to the Christmas season as “Advent.” It’s the time of year Christians celebrate the entry of Jesus to our world as a humble baby. This year at Citylight we are celebrating King Jesus’s arrival by looking at Luke’s account of his birth and the stories that led to his great arrival.
