Advent is a time of remembering and rejoicing in the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, as we look forward to His coming again. We will celebrate this season leading up to Christmas together in several special ways.
‣ "HOPE" ADVENT AND CHRISTMAS SERMON SERIES
This Advent and Christmas season, we'll look at several biblical images of hope to stir our imaginations and calm our hearts as we wait for the Lord to return in glory.
‣ SPECIAL ADVENT PRAYER GATHERING, DECEMBER 17
will have a special Advent prayer time focused on our hope in Christ on
Sunday, December 17 during our regular Formation Class hour starting at
9 a.m. in the Fellowship Room upstairs.
‣ CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE, DECEMBER 24
You are invited to our special Christmas Eve service Saturday, December 24 at 7 p.m. as we celebrate Jesus' birth.
