Advent and Christmas Schedule


How shall we prepare for Christmas?  During this season, when everything around us is swirling with consumption and indulgence, followers of Jesus are quietly summoned to a different way of preparing.  Some of the main characters in the Bible who learn of Christ's coming, including Zechariah, John the Baptist, and Mary, have much to teach us about counter-formational practices. As their call to "prepare" echoes through the centuries to this present day, may we find we are nudged to do whatever it takes to prepare our souls to welcome Christ deeper into the recesses of our life and being. 


Stop by our Mission Marketplace area in Lynn Hall on Sundays and the reception desk during the week for all your alternative giving needs.  You can give a donation to one of several local and global missions that FPC supports. You’ll receive descriptive card to give as a gift for Christmas.  You can also purchase tickets for Round the Table Carol Sing and pick up a copy of our Advent Devotional there.
