Sunday Morning Services
“From Generation to Generation” – Advent Worship Series
November 27–January 1
“Surely, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
for the Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is His name.”
—Mary’s Song (Luke 1:48–49)
This Advent we look at the Christmas story through a micro and macro lens, focusing on both the human interactions and events recorded in the Gospels, as well as the cosmic prophecies in Isaiah. God’s Good News transcends time and space, and the promise is meant to be lived out and passed on. The work of God is always unfolding, in and through us. This season, how will we carry it forth? Find out on Sundays at 9:00 a.m., November 27 through January 1.
