Christmas 2019

Find your place in the Christmas story.

If Christmas is the answer, Advent is the question.

We long for the light of Christ, yet we wait in darkness.

Join us in Advent as we wait together for Christmas.

We seek to find ourselves in this story through the Advent Companions available at the Connection Corner as you walk in. Each day we reflect from the vantage point of one character in the Christmas story, hoping to find ourselves in the Christmas story that is still happening around us.

Come alongside us in the journey by subscribing using the form to the right to receive your daily advent devotional to your email inbox.
