Celebrating Advent Together

Advent is a season of expectant waiting for God among us in the birth of Jesus and anticipation of Christ’s coming again at the end of time. During Advent we prepare ourselves for God to come into our world, our lives, and our hearts anew. In Advent we’re invited to wonder, “What can we do as the Church, as Christ’s body here on earth, to welcome God’s reign of justice and peace today? What can we do as individuals to reorder our lives in the light of God’s love? What would it mean to live as people who truly believe in Jesus as the Savior of all the earth and who expect him to come again at the fulfillment of time? Each Advent we turn to these questions with wonder and hope.

We invite you to celebrate Advent with us as it begins this Sunday, November 29th. Through the BibleApp, we will invite you to join as a church family to reflect on this wonderful hope we have in Jesus through daily bible devotions and meditations.

This is a family event! Please gather with your family and children to count down to Christmas, to be able to truly enjoy what this Christ-mas season is truly about.
