Our Wednesday evening Advent worship services stand as a reminder for us to slow down as the world around us rushes headlong toward Christmas. Advent worship offers us a time of reflection and prayer as we prepare our hearts to welcome the Christ child.
We gather in the quiet beauty of the sanctuary for worship. This service invites us to slow down, center our spirits, and reflect on the miracle of God becoming human in the birth of Jesus. Our meditations will be centered on Making Room in Our Hearts, Days & Homes.
