Advent Sermon Series
November - December 28
Angels Among Us Series Image.jpg
Each week this Advent season, we will see how the angels that appear in the story of Jesus’ birth would have been very comfortable in our world of tweets and hashtags. Their messages were often short and to the point – their favorite line being, “Do not be afraid.” As we look at the stories of these winged messengers to Zechariah, Mary, Joseph, and the shepherds, and their reactions to them, we will contemplate what messages we can offer that will counteract a culture of fear and bring #MoreHope, #MorePeace, #MoreJoy, and #MoreLove to the world!

During the Advent Season, Pastor Debra will give you a Mission with a Message and invite you to be "hashtaggers of hope." We will provide a social media "meme" (photo with a quote) for you to share. This week's message is #MoreHope.


If you're not on social media, we invite you to download the image here and give it to someone in whatever communication channels are available to you.


These responses will help us see our role as messengers of more hope, peace, joy, and love in the world.

We joyfully welcome back congregational singing during the Advent Season!
