ADVENT 2020

Substance over fluff. Joy over diversion. Carols over muzak. Breath over worry. Patience over pressure. Laughter over cynicism. Love over hate. Life over death.
 
For the seasons of Advent and Christmas, not only will we sing the well-known carols, hear the amazing scripture lessons, listen to timeless music, light the Advent candles, but each Sunday, we focus on the wonderful life that faith in Christ provides.
