Sundays in Advent:
Gather for worship each Sunday morning during Advent as we explore “People Who Walked in Darkness: Anticipating the Light.” Our 2014 Advent Theme will lead us in search of a different type of light each week as we explore the scriptures leading up to the birth of Jesus on Christmas Day. Our Christian Education classes will help build our Nativity scene each Sunday during worship and our church youth with be delivering our scripture readings during our service. Join us each Sunday as we reveal a new source of inspiring light in worship.
Education Opportunity for Middle School & Sr. High Youth:
Our Middle School and Senior High youth are invited to attend a special class this Advent season at 9:30 each Sunday morning beginning this week, November 30th. The class will focus on the telling of the Christmas story, lead by our Christian Education Superintendent Terri McFadden.

If your child would like to attend this class (and/or needs transportation for this seasonal offering) please contact Julie Flowers (email@example.com) no later than Saturday, November 29th.
