Advent 2021

This Christmas, you are invited to  discover the fact that you play an integral role in one of the greatest true stories in history. During the four weeks of Advent leading up to Christmas, join us as we seek to experience the anticipation of the prophets, the joyful proclamation of the angels, the journey of the shepherds and wise men to honor him—and how all of this fits in with how we prepare and celebrate Christmas now.

What To Expect If You Visit

Whoever you are, whatever road you have been down, you are welcome here.
  • We offer Sunday morning classes for children Birth - 6th Grade. Upon your arrival please register your child at our information table. Children under 4 are taken immediately to the nursery by their parent. All other children will participate with their parents in our worship gathering for the first 30 minutes and then be dismissed to their classrooms. 
  • The easiest entry door for those with children is the glass double doors at the top of the stairs on the Walnut St side of our building. We do have ramp access at the Northwest corner of our building. This entrance leads immediately into our worship space.
  • Please feel free to contact us via a connect card (Connect Card available above) with any questions.
  • We know that walking into a new church can feel intimidating. So here are some things that we hope will help you be at ease:
    • The majority of folks who attend dress casually; the pastor will probably have jeans on, and we care more about you being here than what you are wearing.
    • We love children. We know that they are often busy, noisy and occasionally naughty. We try hard to offer quality opportunities for our kids to learn in safe (all of our workers have been background checked) and age appropriate environments. And if your family prefers for your children to stay with you while we worship that is totally fine.
    • We believe that those who regularly attend a church should participate financially. We believe that they should give with joy and generosity.  There is no expectation that visitors give. In fact, we don't even pass an offering plate. We have what we call "Joy Boxes" near the doors where folks are encouraged to drop their offering. We also have online/digital giving that can be set up through our app/website.
    • The typical length of a Sunday morning worship gathering is about an hour and fifteen minutes. We start promptly at 10:05am each Sunday. You are encouraged to hang around for a couple of minutes following our time together and meet some new faces.
    • We do have coffee, tea and hot chocolate available in our cafe for anyone who would like a hot drink.
