Sunday December 1st: The First Sunday in Advent


Happy New Year! Or at least a thoughtful, watchful, hopeful new Church year to you. While the world is plunging into holiday decor and spirit we keep our worship quiet and meaningful with the color of hope in Advent: blue. Each week we light a candle in the Advent Wreath to mark the coming light --Christ the newborn King, and Christ who has ushered in the Kingdom of God with a foretaste of the feast to come.  


On Wednesdays in Advent take a step away from busy-ness by joining us at 6pm for soup. Then stay for a half hour lyrical, sung evening prayer service at 7pm.  Our messages this Advent will center on the meaning held in a single verse--the first verse of the gospel of Matthew: "An account of the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, the son of David, the son of Abraham..."


Join us Sunday (8:30 or 10:45) --And stay for coffee and conversation!
