Join us for worship each Sunday in this holy season. We’ll journey to Bethlehem through the stories of some of the central characters who Adventually take us to Christmas Eve and the birth of Jesus.
The Prophets – Rev. Ron | Isaiah 40:1-11
John the Baptist – Rev. Byron | Mark 1:1-8
Mary – Rev. Carissa | Luke 1:26-38
In more typical years, the Christmas Season can be a hard time for those dealing with grief or loss, and this year might be even more difficult.
You are invited to a service of healing and hope, Sunday, December 13 at 4pm on Facebook Live, where we will reflectively celebrate Emmanuel, God with us.
Joseph – Rev. Ron | Matthew 1:18-25
You are in for a real treat if you tune in next Sunday, December 20th at 5pm for a virtual concert of great Christmas Music performed by the members and friends of our SPARK Music Team. You’ll experience a mix of sacred and secular, traditional and contemporary, instrumental and vocal. The concert will be broadcast on both Facebook Live and YouTube. This will be a great event for you, your family and your friends so spread the word.
The concert is in place of our originally planned Journey to Bethlehem outdoor walk which had to be cancelled due to the rising Covid-19 cases in our county.

5pm – Online Family Service (featuring our 2nd Grade Pageant)

Casual Lessons & Carols format
Advent at Home
We’re providing resources to help you celebrate Advent at Home this year. We’ve been delivering Advent Kits to over 500 families, couples and individuals. Kits contain Advent wreath and Christmas Eve candles, a devotional booklet, video devotionals, online classes, and cards to use to invite your bubble to join in.
If you need a kit or more supplies for your family or to share, come by and pick them up from the porch any time after Nov 29.
Each weekday during Advent beginning November 30, a member of our pastoral team will be offering a brief live devotion at 12noon via Facebook Live. We’re looking forward to connecting with you throughout Advent.
Advent Study Classes
This Advent we will be studying INCARNATION: Rediscovering the Significance of Christmas by Rev. Adam Hamilton in all our Advent Study Classes.
Serve this Advent
This Advent, we’ll be participating in three main outreach opportunities. The Angel Tree allows you to buy gifts and gift cards for various ministries, including local families and children in need. You can participate in SPAN’s Reverse Advent Calendar by filling a bag with food items to donate to Serving People Across Neighborhoods (SPAN). And, with our 4th annual Intentional Acts of Kindness you can receive $100 from one of our pastors to turn into a kindness that will make an impact for someone this holiday season.
Journey to Bethlehem Cancelled
Our plans to have a fun nativity to walk through on the church parking lot have been cancelled due to the recent increase in COVID-19 cases. Thanks for understanding.
