Advent is Here!

Advent Is Here

The season of Advent begins on Sunday, December 1st, and continues until we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior on December 25th. Please join us during this holy season as we heed the call of the prophet Isaiah, who urges us to leave behind our ways of fear and selfishness and usher in a new age and a new way of living – The Way of Love.

May you be blessed with time and space for worship, prayer, and holy anticipation this Advent!
