Advent Services

We’ll be holding four Advent Services in the coming Days. This coming Sunday is our annual Christmas cantata, “The Thrill of Hope”.

On Tuesday, December 20th at 6:30pm we’ll be holding our Blue Christmas Service. A Blue Christmas worship service provides the opportunity for us to gather to carve out a time of quiet reflection, to honor the emotions of the season that are not so joyful, and to be reminded that we are not alone in this season.

Join us for our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service at 5:30pm. Christmas Morning we’ll be holding our regular Sunday worship service at 11am. We hope you join us for all these wonderful services! And don’t forget to bring a friend!
