Women's Advent Service | Monday, December 4

Monday, December 4th at 7:00 PM

In the Gospel of Luke, we read that on the night of Jesus’ birth, shepherds arrive at the manger with a story of angels who brought them astounding tidings of a Savior’s birth. Luke tells us that all who hear the tale of the shepherds are amazed. “But Mary,” Luke writes—Mary, who has journeyed so very far beyond her familiar terrain—“treasured all these words and pondered them in her heart” (Luke 2:19, NRSV). Come join us as we begin the busy Advent season with a meaningful service bringing a sense of peace to your heart, followed by a time of fellowship.
