Advent

"A Lot Like Christmas"

Buying and wrapping gifts, baking cookies, attending parties, decorating the house... there is so much to do throughout this Christmas season. Sometimes we can get caught up and overwhelmed with our lives that look a lot like Christmas, but without the birth of Jesus it just isn't Christmas. Join us this Advent season as we take a look at the true meaning of Christmas and how we can keep our lives from simply looking "A Lot Like Christmas," but rather focused on the real Christmas, the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.

Join us on Sundays, December 2-23 for Traditional Worship at 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. in our Sanctuary or for Modern Worship at 9:45 a.m. in The Venue
