Advent is a season of waiting.  We tire of waiting, we do not enjoy waiting.  Yet, when we read across scripture, we see that waiting is something that is a continuous thing in the life of those who follow after God.  Abraham waited for his descendants.  The people waited for freedom and then waited in the desert.  The people waited for a king.  Then for a savior. We now wait for His return.  We see that we wait.  But this waiting is not wasted time. It is time to learn, grow, and mature.  What can we learn in the waiting? 

We want to share with you some key dates in the life of the church in Advent, this season of waiting.

We begin the journey to the manger on this first Sunday of Advent as we learn in the waiting together.

Blue Christmas Service

As joyous as this season is for many of us, it is not as happy for others. Each year we offer a Blue Christmas Service for those who are having their "first" or maybe their "twentieth" Christmas without a loved one. For those who find this season especially hard, we'd love for you to join us on December 18th at 6:00 p.m.
