Welcome to our Advent Hub! As we get closer to the Advent season we will be adding more events and opportunities, but for right now check out some of our most loved events below!

Give + Serve During Advent

Angel Tree Sponsorship

Our angel tree will be ready starting Sunday, Nov. 27. You can help in 3 ways … grab a tag from an Angel  from the tree in the Atrium, choose a “virtual tag” from the online angel tree (see button above), or donate to our Angel Tree fund on our Give Page and someone will do the shopping for you.

Christmas Offering

This year the Christmas Offering will go to support our Food Pantry, which will soon be housed in our new Missions Center. The opportunities for ministry are great. We believe God is at work in the lives of people in our community and will continue to multiply our ability to give as you generously share your special Christmas gifts.
