Sunday Morning Services

“Close to Home” Advent Worship
November 28–January 2

When something hits close to home, it affects us deeply. During the Advent and Christmas season, we journey through Scriptures and rituals that are tender, heavy with emotion, and vulnerable. Close to Home acknowledges the “already but not yet” tension of our faith: Emmanuel is with us, and yet, God’s promised day—our everlasting home—is not yet fully realized.

This Advent, may we be comforted by the One who dwells intimately with us. May we come home—wherever home is found—to live fully with joy, hope, and courage.

Six single services at 9:30 a.m. followed by holiday fellowship, November 28–January 2. Both in-person and livestreamed via our YouTube channel or Facebook page. Visit Sermons for PDF orders of worship and direct video links.
