Advent Sermon Series
Each year, we look forward to Advent and Christmas because these seasons hold so much promise.  For most of us, it’s a time to celebrate God’s promises fulfilled in the birth of Jesus Christ.  But the season of Advent is even more about the promises that are yet to be fulfilled when Christ returns, which means the Promises of Christmas are much deeper and richer than we often realize.  Join us as we explore the Promises of Christmas together this Advent.
If you’ve missed any of the series, you can find past sermons here.
Hanging of the Greens – Saturday, December 2, 9AM-Noon
It’s that exciting time of year when we dress up our homes for Christmas. And, we also delight in being able to dress up God’s house, too. We would love for you to join us Saturday, November 30, from 9am – noon (or whenever during that time you are available), as we put up beautiful trees, candles, wreaths, banners, and more! Hope to see you there.
