Advent Carols and Lessons –
Sunday December 3, 2017 at 4:00pm
Candlelight service that takes us from the story of creation and the fall through the exile and into the salvation of the world through the expectation of the birth of Christ.
Wednesday December 6, 2017 at 7:00pm – 8:30pm
Wednesday December 13, 2017 at 7:00pm – 8:30pm
Wednesday December 20, 2017 at 7:00pm – 8:30pm
Advent means ‘coming.’ The coming of the baby Jesus, God among us in human flesh, the coming of Christ again ‘the Son of man coming in clouds with great power and glory.” In between those two great comings is God’s constant longing for each of us to come to God, to love God and to let God love us.
Be alert, Prepare, Be Not Afraid – glimpses of God’s kingdom are all around us. The study this Advent will look at these themes, using scripture and modern writings. It will conclude with a brief prayer service.
No charge, all are welcome
