Opportunities During Advent

Advent Midweek Services

November 30th, December 7th, 14th, and 21st from 6:15 – 7:30 p.m.

Join us for our midweek Advent gatherings, an opportunity for fellowship and worship! We will begin with a soup and sandwich supper and time of fellowship followed by an evening prayer service from 6:45-7:30 p.m. We will be using a service knows as the Holden Evening Prayer. It is a beautiful setting which includes a musical piece based on Luke, Chapter 1 about the announcement to Mary that she was to bear God’s son and then her response with the Magnificat. As a result, it is a very fitting service for the season of Advent. Come, prepare your heart for the Savior! We hope that you join us as we gather to prepare for the coming of Christ!
