Advent

  •  Sunday December 03, 2017 - Sunday December 24, 2017

Do you know what it feels like to wait for God to show up and to feel like the waiting will never end? This Advent at City of Light, we will be reading the stories of some of the lesser known characters in the Christmas story. Their lives were shaped by waiting for God. Join us and see how our lives are shaped by the God who always shows up.


          10am on Sunday mornings from December 3-December 24

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 living in a one bedroom apartment, 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.
