Close to Home general with FCC copy.jpg

This Advent, may we be comforted by the One who dwells intimately with us.

May we expand safety and sanctuary for everyone wandering far from home.

May we come home—

wherever home is found—

to live fully with joy, hope,

and courage.

Our celebration
of Advent and Christmas

Advent is the time of waiting and preparing

in the weeks leading up to Christmas.

Our theme this year — Close to Home— acknowledges the “already but not yet”

tension of our faith: Emmanuel is with us,

and yet, God’s promised day—

our everlasting home—is not fully realized.  

Join us in person

on Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m.

(live-stream on Facebook or later on YouTube).
