“How does a weary world rejoice?”
An Advent Worship Series
Christ was born into a weary world filled with conflict. This season, we’ll prepare for the birth of Christ by looking at the Gospel of Luke. Discover where joy arrives—despite trepidation, fear, or grief. Consider how joy can be your companion this season, for our joy is rooted in the truth that we belong to God. The world needs our joy, even if we are weary. Celebrate with us each Sunday at 9:00 a.m. through January 7.
