Advent 2: “I Believe in Love: Daring Right Relationship”
Advent 3: "I Believe in God: Ode to Joy”
Advent 4: "I Believe in the Light: Illuminating Peace”
While we wait for the birth of Jesus we fill the night with music and light.
During this time of uncertainty and pandemic we want to light up the night with luminaries (or actually early afternoon) and sing! Safely!
Let’s fill the night with music!
We will be safely singing outdoors our favorite carols during Advent. Join us on Sunday, November 29 and December 6, 13, and 20 at 4pm for socially-distanced caroling.
