All earth is hopeful...Hope is born!

Advent and Christmas celebrations at Zion

Advent is the Season that leads us to Christmas - the celebration of God coming into our world as one of us.  Advent is spent watching and waiting.  For while we on the coming of Jesus, we also celebrate that he has come and remains with us.  Advent is a time when we search for Jesus in our world, in your life.

So how do we talk about Advent?  Better yet, why do we need to bother with Advent when the rest of the world wants to usher in the celebration and not watch and wait?  Dr. Mark Oldenburg put together a presentation a few years ago to help congregations, pastors, and individuals help put the pieces together and answer these questions.

On the longest night of the year, we will gather in prayer and comfort those in our presence who are experiencing grief this season. While Christmas is normally a time of joy, many who are experiencing grief have a difficult time celebrating. Our congregation will gather this night to pray, offer words of comfort, and ultimately remind those who are grieving that they are not alone.
Dinner starts at 6 p.m. and Worship will begin at 7 p.m. There is a children's program at 6:30 p.m. Worship is both in-person and virtual.  Click here to worship virtually.
