Advent Vesper Services – Fear Not!

Wednesdays, Nov. 30, Dec. 7, 14 & 21 – 5:30 p.m.

In a season filled with busyness and to-do lists that can weigh us down, come to the calming center of our mid-week candlelit Advent services.

With beautiful music from “Unfailing Light”, these simple services will reflect the message of angels in the Christmas story, always proclaiming “fear not”. Each week will focus on a different angelic appearance: to Zechariah, Mary, Joseph, and to the chosen people of God. And as we move through this season of waiting and trusting, all ages are invited to participate in a large scale coloring project, filling the bleakness with color and light. Each Sunday a new angel image will be added to our Advent banner ~ stop at the table outside the sanctuary to add your part to the joyful display. Special thanks to Angel Saur for creating these amazing banners.
