celebrate ADVENT

advent 2022.png

Sunday, November 27 is the first Sunday of Advent. Advent is an invitation to get into the Christmas spirit, to let our lives be transformed, and to celebrate the Christ Child who comes to remind us that we are not alone; God is with us!

 

St. Francis of Assisi once said, “All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle.” We sometimes take for granted the power of lighting a candle in the dark and how it can point us forward. The light of God’s grace has been given to us for the sake of lighting the way for others. This Advent, we invite you to consider how we are called to this work of Lighting the Way to the Hope, Peace, Joy and Love of Christ with us.

Join us every Sunday at 10:30am in person or online through Facebook or our Website.

**Childcare available for children 4 and under with rsvp to children@tryfaith.org
