Advent & Christmas

Wednesday 12/24 7:30pm - Christmas Eve candlelight service
We celebrate the light of Christ being born into the world with special music, Christmas carols, candlelight, and holy communion.

The four weeks preceding Christmas is the time when the church prepares for the advent (or coming) of Christ. In the northern hemisphere, the days grow shorter and colder, and the church looks forward to the light of the world.

Look around the world. We know that the world we see needs transformation. In Advent especially we give voice to our longing, our need, our hope for love, for justice, for healing. The Christian story is that God loves the world. Let that love shine forth! Come, Lord Jesus, come.

Let every heart prepare the way - God's love is coming into the world.
