Advent

  •  Sunday December 02, 2018 - Sunday December 23, 2018

Advent is a time to be honest about the darkness we see around us and to long for the coming of Jesus to bring his light. Join us for these four weeks as we wait expectantly for the light of Christ to come.

Resources

As believers and part of the church, we are invited to bring that sense of waiting and expectancy into every aspect of our lives. We wait for God to show up not only on Sunday mornings, but also in our households. Whether you are a family with children, a celibate, or a student in a dorm, you are invited to worship God and await His coming in your household. Here are some helpful resources for you this Advent season.
