What is Advent?

Advent is the church season that takes place the four weeks leading up to Christmas. It is a time to pause and re-center in the midst of the busy-ness of life. It is a season of hope, peace, joy, and love and we prepare for the new things God is doing in the world to increase life and love forever and for all. The color of the season is blue, the color of the pre-dawn sky, a color that signifies our hopeful waiting and joyful expectation during Advent. We invite you to slow down, and join us in this season of waiting and watching.

Opportunities to Worship Together
Gather for worship with us this Advent

Sundays at 10 AM we gather online and in-person for a time of worship, prayer, scripture, song, and community. You can join us in our sanctuary or live on our website, or on YouTube.
As always, everyone is welcome, so invite your friends, family, and neighbors!

Wednesdays at 6:45 PM we gather in our sanctuary and online for Holden Evening Prayer and focus in on our weekly theme with time to explore the active, participatory waiting to which we are called each Advent.
Come early at 6 PM for a soup supper in The Commons.

Extra Opportunities to Celebrate
For those who are feeling merry and bright, and those who are struggling this season

Carols & Community: December 18 from 6-8pm at Willie's Icehouse in Georgetown we are gathering to (in the words of Buddy from Elf) spread Christmas cheer by singing loud for all to hear. Come eat, drink, make friends, and sing all your favorite Christmas songs.


Longest Night: A Quiet Christmas December 21 at 6:30pm we invite you to join us in our sanctuary for a calmer, quieter Christmas worship service that takes into account the grief, suffering, and pain many people carry during the holiday season yet still remembers that it is in this time of year, when the nights are longest that hope is born anew in Christ.
