Advent is a season of anticipation for the birth—and the eventual return—of Christ, and it marks the beginning of our church year. Join us in celebration!
ADVENT IN WORSHIP
Sunday mornings throughout December will be focused on preparing our hearts for the coming of Jesus Christ and the peace he represents on earth.
Help your family focus on Jesus during this Advent season by ordering a family devotional through the church—The Advent Jesse Tree-Devotions for Children and Adults to Prepare for the Coming of the Christ Child at Christmas. Cost is $15. ORDER NOW.
