Advent 2020

Advent is about waiting, expecting and anticipating the birth of Christ our Lord. The Advent season is a magnifier for everyone, but in different ways. For some, it magnifies the good, the happy, the joy. For others, it can magnify the hard, the pain, the darkness. May we travel together as honest as we can on a quest for encouragement, hope, and strength in the places we are currently living- emotionally, spiritually, and physically. Let us magnify and honor Christ this Advent and Christmas season within a weary world. Sunday, November 29 Honoring Reality, Zechariah 14:6-9 Sunday, December 6 Practicing Honesty, Mark 1:1-4 Sunday, December 13 Embracing Paradox, Luke 1:46-56 Sunday, December 20 Borrowing Hope for God is with Us, Matthew 1:23 Thursday, December 24 Magnify Christ, Luke 2:1-20 Sunday, December 27

Current Series: Finding God and Community in the Ordinary

Since many of us remain apart from friends, family, and church family, the winter worship series encourages us to observe how ordinary items remind us of God's abiding presence and how these common items connect us to community.

To enhance the worship series, we are seeking individuals to create visuals in the sanctuary of the ordinary items each week along with individuals to write faith stories of personal reflection in relation to the ordinary item. Contact Pastor April if you would like to share your gifts in faith and time in these creative ways.

May we, the body of Christ, find God in the ordinary and thus allow the Spirit to connect us together as the community of faith in mysterious and holy ways.
