ADVENT: A Season of Preparation

Christmas decorations seem to go up earlier and earlier every year. But for us as a church, we wait until Christmas to celebrate Christmas. The weeks leading up to Christmas Eve are a time of preparation and waiting – a season we call Advent. We wait in the darkness before the light of Christmas. We find Christmas to be more meaningful by intentional preparing our lives and our hearts for the coming of Christ. Join us as we wait for Jesus, the hope of the world.
