Advent Candle Lighting

Join with Christians around the world in the prayerful ritual of lighting the Advent wreath.

Prayer

A Child came for all of us and because of that Child

Peace more enduring than hate

    Nourished by prayer, supported by community and energized by ministry, we are constantly addressing the needs of these times.
