Each year in the month of December, the Southern Seminary community gathers in Alumni Chapel to celebrate the Christmas season. “O Come, Emmanuel: An Advent Celebration” will provide a rich, gospel-centered Christmas worship gathering based on the themes of Advent. It will be a delightful and meaningful time for families and friends of Southern Seminary to begin their celebration of the Christmas season through the story of Christ’s birth in Scripture and song.

Billy Graham School Department of Biblical Worship will collaborate with three local worship ministries: Sojourn Music, Sovereign Grace Music, and Highview Baptist Worship Ministry. With a wonderfully varied musical prism of expression and style, this concert is designed to exalt the incarnate Christ in the contour of the gospel through the Word and song.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, Dec. 5 at 4:00pm or 7:30pm for “An Advent Celebration.”

*Limited Child Care will be available.

Ministry Spotlight


Scarlet Hope is an outreach ministry to women of the sex industry in and around Louisville, Kentucky.

The name Scarlet Hope came from Matthew 27:27-31, the event on the way to the crucifixion when Jesus was stripped of his clothing and put in a scarlet robe to be mocked by Roman soldiers. Women of the sex industry are repeatedly stripped of their clothing and stripped of their dignity. They are naked and vulnerable in every conceivable way. Their beauty has been so cheapened and twisted that it has become a mockery of God’s original creation. But Christ wants to give these women HOPE. He wants to clothe them with purity and righteousness. He wants to clothe them with honor and true beauty.


Scarlet Hope is passionate about sharing the Gospel with everyone in the adult entertainment industry. Their ministry is made up of volunteers, staff, and supporters that are committed to reaching those that need hope and love. They are unapologetically about Jesus Christ and know that He is our only hope. For more information about Scarlet Hope, please visit their website here!
