Advent: Are you ready for an adventure?
This ADVENT, we will be going on "The Journey" with Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem. Our Sunday school program will use video footage of the Holy Land with commentary by Rev. Adam Hamilton to help us put ourselves in the story. Our worship services and messages will pick up similar themes as we hear in story and drama and music more about the Journey towards Bethlehem. We begin on Sunday, November 29 with Sunday school at 9:00 am and worship at 10:00 am. Everyone is welcome!
