During this Advent and Christmas season, we will celebrate the ways God has guided us through times of trial and triumph, and we will acknowledge the people and things in our lives that continue to lead us towards Christ. We will also look to where God is calling us, as a people, to be the light of the world and we will proclaim the promise of God’s plan to redeem and restore the whole of creation into the fullness of the image of God in which we were made. 

We have a powerful message of Vision, Guidance, and Hope that we want to tell to all who would hear it. Jesus Christ, the Lord, has come to shine the light of God’s love into the lives of all people.  Come and be blessed – together, let us be inspired and renewed as we look to the Star that showed the way to Peace.
