During each of the four Sundays during Advent, starting on Sunday, November 30th, we will be celebrating the themes of Advent: Peace, Hope, Joy, and Love. Advent is the beginning of the Christian year and marks the time right up until Christmas when we anticipate Jesus’ birth, not just 2000 years ago, but even today as we invite Christ into our lives. Each Sunday, we’ll spend time looking at how movies help us to understand these four themes even better. Also, join us during the service on Dec. 14th for our Children’s Christmas Play.
Longest Night Service – Tuesday, December 2nd @ 7pm
The Christmas season is a wonderful time to celebrate with friends and family and to experience the joy of the holiday season. We have to remember that it can also be a very difficult time of year for those grieving, experiencing loss, facing depression, and numerous other reasons. And so, as we enter into this time of year with the greatest amount of darkness – the longest nights – we also celebrate that Christ came into the world as our light. Through Christ’s birth, we are given the wonderful gifts of renewed hope, a sense of peace, a promise of love, and a renewed joy. We invite you to join us for this Tuesday evening service as we acknowledge the darkness of the longest nights, but celebrate that Christ comes to overcome the darkness and to bring light into our lives.
Classical Bells Christmas Concert – Friday, December 5th @ 7pm
