The First Week of Advent is upon us! A season full of the wonder that is Christ our Lord coming into our earthly lives.

Tomorrow, Dec. 2, is the First Wednesday in Advent and it will also bring our first two wonderful Advent events! First, at 12:05 p.m. we will have our first "Music and Masques" seasonal music concert in person in our worship space! Think of this like our annual "Lunch in the Loft" concert series, but without the organ ... or the Loft ... or the lunch. :) Bring a mask and listen to the music from our own Brett and Marita Wolgast.
Second, at 6:30 p.m. we will stream our Mid-week Advent Holden Worship. This service will follow the Holden Evening Prayer format with live preaching from our Pastors each of the next three Wednesdays.
