Things in this world are not the way they're supposed to be. But the Advent season points us to God's promises of hope, peace, joy, and love. One day God will take all that is wrong with this world and make it right, all that is broken and make it whole, and all that is marred and make it beautiful. He will make all things new.

Join us for worship each Sunday of Advent at 9 or 10:45 a.m. as we learn what it means to live in light of that coming day when he will make all things new.

Week 1: Hope Fulfilled

November 27

Many of us were taught that our hope was “to go to heaven when we die.” But Jesus came to bring heaven here, and he’ll come again to make all things new. This sermon will help us understanding more fully the hope that is ours for the renewal of all things.

Week 2: Peace Perfected

December 4

Peace is both God’s intention and his promise: that one day he will bring shalom in its fullness. In light of that reality, we are called to be peacemakers because in doing so we imitate God. This sermon will explore what peace-making looks like in our everyday lives.

Week 3: Joy Everlasting

December 11

Joy is the birthright of every Christian. But joy can sometimes feel elusive in a world like ours. This sermon will explore what can rob us of God’s joy in our lives and what it looks like to cultivate the virtue of joy.

Week 4: Love Unending

December 18

What is it that secures for us these great promises of hope, peace, and joy? It’s the love of God. Despite all the ways darkness looks like it's winning, we are those who hold firmly to the truth that one day love will be victorious.
