The Advent Season
Advent is one of the most recognized seasons in the Church Calendar. Many individuals, regardless of religion, have used an Advent calendar. You may recognize those small windows that count-down the days until Christmas.
The days leading to Christmas, Advent is about awaiting the arrival of the Messiah. We don't appear to be very good at it, though. What we often refer to as "Advent" (or arrival) looks quite different from what the intent is for this season.
This year, join us from Thanksgiving Weekend through Christmas Eve. We'll be celebrating the Advent of Hope, Peace, Love, Joy, and Christ!
November 28th -"The Advent of Hope"
Jesus is the deliverer from idols that cannot deliver. Giving us hope in the one who can see his work through.
December 5th - "The Advent of Peace"
You can receive peace through Christ. Invited to live with him forever, through surrender not conquest.
December 12th -"The Advent of Love"
Love has no better example than Jesus. Giving definition and expression through the world.
(1 JOHN 4:7–10)
December 19th - "The Advent of Joy"
We all long for joy that isn’t fleeting - we’re given that as a gift through Jesus.
December 24th - "The Advent of Christ"
the 2021 Metro Life Church Christmas Eve Candlelight Communion.
Christmas is a time to Celebrate
Each Sunday we'll worship our Savior together, look to God's Word and receive communion. Before and after our services there will also be ways to enjoy fellowship and a few gifts and surprises along the way.
