Sunday Evenings in Advent—”And His Name Shall Be Called…”

  • "...Wonderful Counselor"— November 26 at 6:30—7:30 pm.  Join us for an intimate concert with Dan Forrest on piano and Sharon Gerber on cello.  Come and press your reset button during the time of Christmas chaos.
  • "..Mighty God"— December 3 at 6:30—8:00 pm.  The adult choir and Kingdom Kids will join together with orchestra and the King’s Ringers to present “This Christmas Night”.   Come and join this grand celebration of the mightiness of our Savior!
  • "...Everlasting Father"—December 10 at 6:00—7:30 pm (including post-service event). The children’s choir will share with us about the joy of their Everlasting Father as they give their offering of praise. This will be followed by an exciting time of snacks, fun and preparing goodie bags to take to our neighbors next week as we go caroling!  This is a great way to help children think of others this season.
  • "...Prince of Peace"—December 17 at 6:00—7:30 pm (including caroling).  Join us for an upbeat and worshipful time of prayer and praise for the whole family.  After this short service we will take the good news of our Prince of Peace as we go caroling and present goodie bags to our Mitchell Road neighbors.
