Advent - Sunday 12/11 worship 11am

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all
might believe through him. He himself was not the light,
but he came to testify to the light. John 1:6-8

The days get shorter. Sometimes the light seems fragile, scarce, hard to find. Sometimes we may need some prompting, a hint, a witness to show where the light is, or even to kindle the hope that the light is coming.

This Sunday we light the 3rd Advent candle as we wait for Messiah, the light coming into the world. Rev. Lisa Bellan-Boyer will be leading worship and preaching starting at 11am. Following the service, we will have a special congregation meeting to review our call process and elect a call committee.

The Light is Coming!
