This is the season of Advent: 

Advent, from the Latin adventus, which means “coming,” is a very special time of year, a “set-apart” time.  When the rest of our culture is rushing about with Christmas parties and shopping, Advent provides people of faith a time of pause, of preparation for the coming of Christ into our world.  The four weeks before Christmas constitute the season of Advent and each week is designed to take us on a journey, bringing us ever closer to the foot of the manger, preparing us to greet again the presence of God-with-Us.  We always begin with the prophecies, move through the cry of John the Baptist to prepare the way for the Messiah, and then culminate our Advent journey with recounting the events leading directly to Jesus’ birth.  Following the tradition of the earliest Methodists, we will also be celebrating the Lord’s Supper each week of Advent.  Please join us for this beautiful journey, designed to bring you ever closer to Christ.

 

Join us for your Advent Journey as we look at "The Gifts of the Season." on Sunday mornings.

  • 9:00am First Service. This service is modeled after the gatherings of the early church:  food, scripture, conversation, prayer and weekly communion.  It is interactive and geared for all ages, providing you with opportunities to interact with the pastors as we learn and share about the Scriptures as they apply to our lives. How is God working in your life? Come. Listen. Share. Reflect. Grow.

 

  • 11:00 Service. This service features our choir, Children's Moment, scriptures, sermon, prayer and monthly communion.

 

  • 10:00am Sunday School Classes (K-12): Between our services, classes for Kindergarten through 5th grade, youth and adults are offered. Youth group (6th grade-12th grade) will meet following the 11:00 service.

Children's Christmas Pageant

Our Children and Youth will be presenting the annual Christmas Pageant during the 11:00 service on Sunday, Dec. 21.  Any children or youth that would like to be involved are invited to attend rehearsals Sunday mornings at 10:00 on Dec. 14 and 21.

Epiphany Pancake Breakfast

Join us to celebrate Epiphany Sunday with a Pancake Breakfast between services. While we give thanks for the gift of salvation made flesh in the infant Christ child, our hearts are aware of other families across Sub-Saharan Africa who face the deadly disease of malaria.  Children and pregnant women are the most suceptable to malaria so it seems only fitting that, as we remember how our Savior's birth offers us life, we reach out to help save the lives of others.  All donations from our Epiphany Pancake Breakfast will go toward our pledge to end the devestation of malaria through Imagine No Malaria.

IMAGINE NO MALARIA

Our church's goal to raise $7,500 can start here.  Visit the webiste: www.ImagineNoMalaria.org or call toll free: 866-521-1179 or contribute by writing a check payable to UMC-Imagine No Malaria.
