This Christmas season, we'll be observing the four weeks of Advent. Each Sunday, we'll gather to read scripture, hear the Gospel, light the Advent candles, worship, take communion, and pray. We'll also have opportunities to worship and serve. We hope this season draws you closer to the heart of God. Below you'll find a schedule of our Advent weeks. Make sure to mark your calendar and join us!

Final Sunday & First Sunday
As a church family we have always used the last Sunday of the year and the first Sunday of the new year to reflect on what God has done throughout the year and to anticipate what God will do in the upcoming year. Instead of gathering in our venues, we encourage everyone to gather with their friends, family or with your House Church. We want to continue our yearly tradition of reflecting back on what God has done and looking forward to what God will do.
When: December 25 & January 1
More information coming soon.
