Wednesday on Tuesday for Adults: When the Heart Waits
Tuesday, November 24 • 6:00 p.m. • Chapel
Waiting is counter-cultural. Watching and waiting grants value to patience, anticipation and peace, while everyone around seems to be rushing around, exhausted and stressed. During the holidays seasons, it is important to be intentional about our hopes and dreams, for spending time in gratitude for what we have, for expectantly waiting and prepararing for the coming of Christ into the world, by both remembering the birth of Jesus and anticipating the ways in which the Spirit of Christ continues to come to us. This evening, several members of the ministerial staff will share our hopes for honoring and celebrating the Thanksgiving and Advent seasons this year.
Songs of Our Faith: Advent

Have you ever wondered who King Wenceslaus was and why he was considered a “good” king? Join us on Wednesday, December 2, to learn the stories behind such Advent songs as “Good King Wenceslaus,” “The Cherry Tree Carol,” and “Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence.” We will explore history and theology and sing some of the wonderful songs of our faith for this holy season.
