Join us as we enter into Advent with faith, fellowship, service, and joy!
Tuesday, November 29th at 7 pm (Parish Hall)
Join Deacon Kurt Godfryd as we journey toward the gift of Christmas…
In the Gospel of Mark (8:18), Jesus says, “Do you have eyes and not see, ears and not hear?” In every way, Jesus’ words provide us with what should be our disposition throughout the holy season of Advent! For Advent is a time in which we prepare our hearts and minds for the anniversary of Our Lord’s birth and His second coming at the end of time. On November 29, you are invitied to join Deacon Kurt Godfryd for a one-hour refletion and exploration of the advent themes of hope, faith, joy and peace. It is hoped this session will help us both open our eyes and ears to that which is truly important in our lives. There is no cost to attend and no RSVP necessary – feel free to invite a friend to join you!
