Mid-week Advent Services

During the month of December on the 2nd, 9th, and 16th, we will be offering Wednesday Advent Worship as a way to prepare for the Savior.  Services will be held at 7:30pm, and we will explore the idea of “Being on Our Knees” – as we anticipate the Jesus event as something past, present and future.  We all want to be ready, and we will find out how!
