The Advent season is filled with many opportunities celebrate in worship. Here is the list of all our special services of the advent season which begins on Sunday, December 2, 2018. This list include the hours of the services and any special elements.
“Because of our God’s merciful compassion, the Dawn from on high will visit us to shine on those who live in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.” (Luke 1:78-79)
This season, we remember how long ago, God birthed hope and peace into the lives of the desperate people of Israel through the baby Jesus and how God offers that same hope and peace to us as we come and worship Him today. Join us for worship this season and experience the unspeakable joy of Jesus Christ in your life.
