Advent is one of the oldest and holiest seasons of the Christian church. But what does Advent look like today? What does Advent look like in a world that seems to be coming apart? What would it look like for us to recapture the spirit of Advent, the spirit of Hope, of Peace, of Love, of Joy at this moment in the world?
We need to recapture the beauty of these truths. And our world needs us to live them out. Join us each Sunday for worship as we Recapture Advent and join us for all these exciting events!
St. Nick Sunday

Birthday Gift for Christ Delivery Day
We'll gather our gifts and food for the families that we are serving on Saturday, December 18th, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. We'll take these gifts as an example of Christ's love and help be a blessing to so many in this season!
Christmas Party at Trinity
Also, on Saturday, December 18th at 10:00 a.m. we will travel to Forrest, MS for a Christmas party with our friends at Trinity Hispanic Mission.
As joyous as this season is for many of us, for others, it is not as happy. Each year we offer a Blue Christmas Service for those who are having their "first" Christmas without a loved one. Or maybe their "twentieth." For those who find this season especially hard, we'd love for you to join us on Sunday, December 19th 6:00 p.m.
