WELCOMEADVENT Worship Series

Advent is about the breathless expectation of light in a world of darkness. Jesus is born into a world of turmoil: the immigrant is rejected, homelessness is rampant, cruelty and bureaucracy reign in the halls of power as the people are sent back to their hometowns for a census. And yet, in that darkness, a light is promised. The light that will set us free from the narrative of death and finally bring all humanity into the promise of life. Join us this Advent as we look at our Scripture stories, asking where do we find hope, peace, joy and love in the Scriptures, where do we see it today and how do we continue to live for it in a world that so often feels like it has given itself over to despair. Christ is coming, we are living for hope in a world of despair. Join us every Sunday at 10am throughout the Advent Season.
