OUR OPEN AND AFFIRMING STATEMENT
“We are an inclusive and diverse community of faith, connected by the teachings of Jesus, that call us to accept and love everyone just as they are, regardless of age, race, gender, physical or mental challenges, financial status, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression to build a just world for all, and to serve our community.”
Meets on Sunday before Worship at 9:30 am.
On Zoom and in person.
This is an interactive series for adults and older youth led by our Intergenerational Education Coordinator, Todd Siefker. Each session is designed to introduce us to ancient and modern Christ-like examples of faithful living. The goal is to will become more like those we admire.
Second Sunday of Advent
The Advent wreath as a whole is meant to remind us of both the immortality of our souls and God’s promise of everlasting life to us through Christ. The candles also have their own special significance. Each week a candle is lit. On the second Sunday of Advent, we light two blue candles. The first candle represents hope and is called the Prophecy Candle. The second candle represents peace and is called the Bethlehem Candle.
Join us for worship on Sunday to hear the good news of Advent as told by John the Baptizer.
