Advent and Christmas 2023

Advent is more than a season of pine-scented celebrations and candle-light prayer. It is a time when God's kin-dom vision interrupts the flow of human time and expectation.

Join us for this year's "Advent Interruptions" worship series. Through the lens of apocalyptic texts in the Book of Isaiah and the Gospel According to Mark, we explore the way God's hope, love, joy, and peace interrupt the expectations of a weary world with the promises of Emmanuel, God-with-us, embodied in Jesus Christ.

In addition to our 10 AM Sunday Morning Service, you’re invited to join us for two unique worship celebrations on Christmas Eve.
