Advent is the period of four Sundays and weeks before Christmas.  Advent means “coming” in Latin.  This is the coming of Jesus into the world.  Christians use the four Sundays and weeks of Advent to prepare and remember the real meaning of Christmas.

Tonight

We will have a candlelight Christmas Eve service that begins at 6:00 p.m.  Special music, scripture readings, congregational carols, etc.  Plan now to invite your family to attend and discover once again the true meaning of Christmas.


Resolutions for the New Year

Ever thought of making a resolution to read the Bible more?  There are excellent reading plans on the internet which can direct you and to help you reach your goal to read through the Bible.  Would you consider joining Pastor Patti and read through the Bible this year?  Or if you are really ambitious, join her and read through the Bible in 40 days!  January 1, 2018 is just around the corner. Instead of focusing on losing “something,” why not look at “gaining” Biblical knowledge and intimacy with God through His Word this year!  The challenge is on!
