Shopping, Decorating, and the Kingdom of God

The Kingdom of God is like...

...people who drop everything to serve others the day before an impending snow storm... beautifying their worship space with an enormous Chrismon tree packing food boxes for the food insecure in our community to last through the Christmas break shopping for Christmas presents for kids in need at our local school (and having lots of fun along the way!)

It's Advent!

What is Advent?
"Advent" means "Coming"
It's the time we celebrate Christ coming in "History, Mystery, and Majesty"
We celebrate Christ coming to us in history as a baby, the Word of God taking on human flesh.
We celebrate the ways in which Christ comes to us NOW in mystery.
We long for the day Christ comes to us again in majesty.

We light a new candle on the Advent wreath each week.  And that light is our tiny little protest of hope against the darkness.  That light is a witness that the busy hustle does not run our lives.  It is a sign of our vigil.  It is a sign of our waiting.  O Come, O Come, Emmanuel!

Join us for worship in Advent, every Sunday at 11:00am
Make an Advent wreath for your home and observe daily Advent devotions with your family

Blessed Waiting
