SATURDAY, DECEMBER 18

Advent Retreat, 9:00am-12:00pm

Advent is too often about the “things” of the season (shopping, gifts, parties, planning, travel), when it could be about the “time” of the season, where the moments of Advent are what make the “things” significant and important and not the other way around.  Please join us for what we hope will be a restful and restorative journey into the heart of Sabbath, and learning where Sabbath points us in finding God in Advent.  REGISTER HERE
