CONGREGATION-WIDE ADVENT STUDY: Everyone is invited to read Jorge Acevedo’s Advent Study Book Sent. This is a 5 week study on who Jesus is and why he was sent to this earth to save the human race. Each week’s readings will be accompanied by a pastoral devotional available on our church’s Facebook page or in church prior to worship. The books are available in the Narthex on Sunday. The congregation is encouraged to read the first chapter Thanksgiving weekend.
