Darkest Night Dinner Church

Thursday, December 20th, at 6 p.m. in the Auditorium
For those of us in the northern hemisphere, the Advent season coincides with some of the longest nights of the year. During this tender time, we prepare ourselves for the light embodied by the Christ child. In this Dinner Church experience, we will help prepare the food, the Auditorium, and our hearts for the light of Jesus. We will honor the mixed emotions of the season in a creative fusion of fellowship and worship.

Advent Prayer Cards

This year we have created four Advent prayer cards, one for each week in Advent. The purpose of the cards is for each of us to have a way of reflecting on the spiritual gifts of the Advent season. We encourage you to pick up a card each Sunday to use for your Advent devotional time. If you have a friend or family member who might like to have a copy of these cards, please take an extra one to share. The cards will be available each Sunday at the Meeting House entrances as well as in the Office and Library. May your Advent season be blessed with hope, peace, love and joy!
