Advent & Christmas 2017

Advent begins on Sunday, December 3. Our worship services will include the lighting of advent candles each week of Advent. Throughout the advent season the congregation is invited to pray aloud in worship, each week we will focus our prayers on the themes of Advent: Hope, Peace, Joy and Love. Pray...the prayers offered do not need to be professional, speak from the heart as we worship together and lift up joys, concerns, praise and thanks to God.   


Sunday, December 3    FIRST Sunday of Advent       HOPE

The celebration choir, along with the bell choir and Sunday school children,  will present an Advent Cantata at 9:00 and 11:00 am.  This collection of favorite advent songs is woven together with scripture as we await the coming of the Christ child.
