First Sunday of Advent
As we enter this holiday season, we’ll seek to uncover some of the wonder we’ve lost at the heart of Christmas. Honest Advent will illuminate the astonishing, hope-filled truth that the God who showed up in the hardest parts of our humanity is still showing up today.
10:15 AM Common Grace Modern Worship
“Honest Advent: Vulnerability”

Here are the easy steps to shop online!
Step 1: Open and download the form called “Alternative Gift Fair Form.” Read thru the gift choices and mark the number of gifts and the amount you would like to purchase.
