Advent and Christmas Season Worship 2019

The Christmas season begins with Advent and continues through the celebration of our Savior’s birth until Epiphany.
During Advent we gather to worship and anticipate the coming of our Lord Jesus.
At Christmas we praise God for the gift of His son, Jesus.

Midweek Advent Services, Wednesdays Dec 4, 11, 18
Advent is a time of waiting and preparation.  We are urged to be quiet, to wait, to listen, and to take in the wonder of the season.  We live in hope for Christ’s return even as we celebrate his long ago coming on Christmas.
This year we quite our minds and hearts and explore the themes of “Do Less”, “Wonder”,  and “Hope” through the Word, story, prayer, and poetry.
