Welcome the Seasons | Advent Worship

We have always approached the Holiday Season with the intention of enriching our spiritual and devotional lives as we move from the early days of Advent, through Christmas, into the Epiphany season. But it’s easy to become overwhelmed with these busy days. Join us for a special worship event on the weekend of November 20-21 as we prepare to Welcome The Seasons. Invite your family and friends as we sing together, light candles, read scripture, learn some new melodies and express gratitude to God in prayer. Then be sure to join us throughout Advent as we experience days of hope, peace, love and joy.

On-Campus Worship: Saturdays at 5:30 pm | Sundays at 9:00 & 10:30 am
