We hope you will join us this Advent season for one of our services either in person or online. This season truly is the most wonderful time of the year. We are excited to see what God will do! Check back here as we continue to add events during the season.
It is easy to find reasons why we might consider ourselves unworthy of the love of God. We have made too many mistakes. We have hurt too many people. We have put ourselves before others too many times. Sometimes we can feel like misfits – like we don’t fit into the story that God is telling in the world. The good news, however, is that in the story of Christmas there are misfits all around. From a young, unwed pregnant teenager who gives birth to the Savior of the world to a group of riff raff shepherds who are the first to hear about God’s rescue plan. If you feel like a misfit, you are in good company and you belong. Join us for our Advent Series on Sunday mornings, beginning November 28.
This year’s Advent Offering will go to provide affordable housing for families in our local community and in Liberia partnering with Dr. Jerry Kulah, District Superintendent of the United Methodist Church in Liberia. With your continued help, we plan to build at least two more homes in our community and at least five homes in Liberia.
We have been challenged this year with a matching gift of up to $100,000 from a generous family in our church. So, every dollar you give to provide the gift of housing will be matched up to $100,000.
We will begin accepting the Advent Offering on December 19th to the end of the year. To give, click here and select “Advent Offering.”

In light of the windy and wet weather that is expected for Saturday, December 11th, we have decided to move the Christmas Festival to Sunday, December 12th. We apologize for any inconvenience but certainly hope you will continue to join us for this fun, Christmassy community event. To accommodate these changes, the Christmas Festival will look a little different. We will have s’mores, hot cocoa, face painters, Santa’s Toy Shop and a DJ outside. Afterward, we will have popcorn and watch “The Grinch” in the Student Room. We look forward to enjoying the Christmas season with you all soon! Invite friends and family and spread the word about the date change.
