Sundays, November 27 – December 25, 2016| 9:00 am & 11:00 am
The 2016 Advent season begins Sunday, November 27. The season of Advent consists of four weeks of preparing to celebrate Christmas. In the church an Advent wreath holds four large candles which remind us each successive week of the hope, the love, the peace, and the joy we receive in the birth of our Savior Jesus.
If you would like to deepen your relationship with God and others during this Christmas season, the music, the message, and the candles promise to enlighten your own hope, love, peace, and joy.
