From the Pastor's Desk: Advent 2021 Greetings

I greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.


I am exuberant as we are approaching the season of Advent. My heart is swelling with love as I see the commitment and direction of our church since I started my pastoral journey with you in October. You are all a gift to me. The season of Advent serves as a time of renewal and recommitment as we meditate on the first arrival of our Lord and Savior and wait with anticipation for the second arrival of our King.


I would like to encourage each of you to take time out of your busy schedule to consider how good God has been to you. For the next four weeks please be in prayer for our church family as we focus on these Advent themes:
