Advent Services – “Jesus Christ: God with Us”

Thurs from 5:15 – 5:45 pm, Nov 29, Dec 6, 13, 20

Join us for Advent Worship centering on the ways in which God is with us through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Each week will focus on a different word picture of the coming Christ found in the words of Isaiah: Christ is our Potter, our Shepherd, our Living Branch, our Guide.

Our Advent service time together will include congregational song, devotional Scripture reading, and contemplative prayer. The sanctuary will also be open after the service for those who would like a quite time and place to pray.

All are welcome!
