Advent begins this week!

Nov 29, 2018

This week we begin our Advent sermon series about the signs and symbols of God with us.

At this time of the year, we feel worn out from a busy fall and are weary from bad news. We can’t wait for the chance to escape it all at Christmas. But the trees and gifts, stockings and candles were never meant to magically transport us out of this world. They were meant to be symbols of the hope Jesus is bringing to this world!

This Advent we’ll explore how these iconic Christmas symbols point to the many ways God shows up in our lives — and how they invite us to practice Christmas differently. Instead of seeking sentimental escape, how can we follow Jesus by showing up for our neighbors?

We hope you will join us for this Advent sermon series, which begins December 2nd and continues through to our Christmas Eve services on December 24th.
