Complementary devotionals to enrich your Advent season are available in the narthex and the church office for you to pick up.

Everyone including children are invited to take part in The Sweetest Story Ever Told a fun, hands-on (and delicious!) way to experience God’s greatest gift to us — His Son!

The Chrismon Hope Tree
Stop by the Chrismon Hope Tree in the main entrance to write your hopes on a star and pin it to our tree.
